Without question, low dimensional topology is among the most popular areas of mathematics these days. This is altogether reasonable on several counts, including the fact that it resonates with the world of our ordinary experience (at least to some extent: one doesn’t usually encounter the complement of the trefoil knot on the way to the mall), that it allows wonderful pictures .

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Low dimensional topology. Somerville, MA: International Press, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book. It assembles research papers which reflect diverse currents in low-dimensional topology. The topology of 3-manifolds, hyperbolic geometry and knot theory emerge as major themes. The inclusion of surveys of work in these areas should make the book very useful to students as well as researchers.

Low dimensional topology normally refers to either 3 or 4 dimensional topology, and the techniques are quite different in each of these dimensions. – Cheerful Parsnip Mar 11 '14 at 1.

The Conference was devoted to a broad spectrum of topics in Low-Dimensional : Hardcover. Lectures on low-dimensional topology. During the week of May, a conference on low-Dimensional Topology was held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The Conference was devoted to a broad spectrum of topics in Low-Dimensional Topology. The Park City Mathematics Institute summer school in explored in depth the most exciting recent aspects of this interaction, aimed at a broad audience of both graduate students and researchers.

The present volume is based on lectures presented at the summer school on low-dimensional : $ The volume will be of use both to graduate students seeking to enter the field of low-dimensional topology and to senior researchers wishing to keep up with current developments.

The volume begins with notes based on a special lecture by John Milnor about the history of the topology. Selected Applications of Geometry to Low-Dimensional Topology About this Title.

Active 5. This course introduces topology, covering topics fundamental to modern analysis and geometry. It also deals with subjects like topological spaces and continuous functions, connectedness, compactness, separation axioms, and selected further topics such as function spaces, metrization theorems, embedding theorems and the fundamental group.

Geometric topology is more motivated by objects it wants to prove theorems about. Geometric topology is very much motivated by low-dimensional phenomena -- and the very notion of low-dimensional phenomena being special is due to the existence of a big tool called the Whitney Trick, which allows one to readily convert certain problems in manifold theory into (sometimes quite complicated.

These are lecture notes from the Clay Mathematics Institute summer school ``Floer Homology, Gauge Theory, and Low Dimensional Topology''.

The main goal of these notes is to sketch a proof of Giroux correspondence between open book decompositions of three manifolds and contact structures, and then discuss various applications of this correspondence.

in these lectures, Goda considers circle–valued Morse theory for link complements. He uses this theory to give obstructions to a knot being ﬁbered. The main theme in Section 2 is contact geometry and its interplay with Floer homology. The lectures of John Etnyre give a detailed account of open book de.

With the approach of an explicit computational point of view on knot invariants, this user-friendly volume will benefit readers to easily understand low-dimensional topology from examples and computations, rather than only knowing terminologies and theorems.

Lectures on Contact Geometry in Low Dimensional Topology John Etnyre 1. Introduction Contact geometry has been a key tool in many recent advances in low-dimensional topology. For example contact geometry was an integral part in the following results: (1) Kronheimer and Mrowka’s proof that all non-trivial knots satisfy property P[32].

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. Topology *immediately available upon purchase as print book shipments may be delayed due to the COVID crisis.
