The principal goal of this book, now in its second revised edition, remains providing an introduction to the low-dimensional topology and Casson's theory; it also reaches out, when appropriate, to more recent research topics. The book covers some classical material, such as Heegaard splittings, Dehn surgery, and invariants of knots and links. The book contains a number of open problems and conjectures related to the hyperbolization theorem as well as rich discussions on related topics including geometric structures on 3-manifolds, higher dimensional negatively curved manifolds, and hyperbolic : Birkhäuser Basel. Three-Dimensional Manioflds and Topology, Vol. Later chapters address more advanced topics, including Waldhausen’s theorem on a class of 3-manifolds that is completely determined by its fundamental group. Part III 3-Manifolds (Lent) Finite Groups Daniel Gorenstein.

One goal is to understand the importance of Thurston's geometrization conjecture for the classification of 3-manifolds. In General * History: In the late s, William Thurston revolutionized our understanding of 3-manifolds; He stated a far-reaching geometrization conjecture, proved it for a large class of manifolds, called Haken manifolds, and posed 24 open problems describing his vision of the structure of 3-manifolds; ByThe program had been essentially completed, including .The book contains a number of open problems and conjectures related to the hyperbolization theorem as well as rich discussions on related topics including geometric structures on 3-manifolds, higher dimensional negatively curved manifolds, and hyperbolic groups.In this article We discuss some topics from the geometric topology of 3-manifolds with or without links where this has led to new viewpoints as well as new results.
