Rolfsen's appealing booklet on knots and hyperlinks may be learn through somebody, from newbie to professional, who desires to know about knot thought. novices locate an inviting advent to the weather of topology, emphasizing the instruments wanted for knowing knots, the elemental team and van Kampen's theorem, for instance, that are then utilized to concrete difficulties, akin to computing knot teams.

If arithmetic is a language, then taking a topology path on the undergraduate point is cramming vocabulary and memorizing abnormal verbs: an important, yet now not continuously fascinating workout one has to head via sooner than you can actually learn nice works of literature within the unique language. the current e-book grew out of notes for an introductory topology path on the collage of Alberta.

This booklet offers the 1st steps of a idea of confoliations designed to hyperlink geometry and topology of 3-dimensional touch buildings with the geometry and topology of codimension-one foliations on third-dimensional manifolds. constructing virtually independently, those theories at the start look belonged to 2 diversified worlds: the idea of foliations is a part of topology and dynamical structures, whereas touch geometry is the odd-dimensional 'brother' of symplectic geometry.
