Lectures on the Topology of 3-Manifolds An Introduction to the Casson Invariant The book will be accessible to graduate students in mathematics and theoretical physics familiar with some elementary algebraic and differential topology, including the fundamental group, basic homology theory, transversality, and Poincaré duality on manifolds.

He also shows how a three manifold bounded by the surface leaves a trace in this character variety. These notes were originally designed for students with only elementary knowledge of differential geometry and topology. In the first chapters, the author does not focus on the details of the differential geometric constructions and refers to.

The text was typed in TeX by Sheila Newbery, who also scanned the figures. Thurston conjectured that hyperbolic 3-manifolds have a finite-sheeted cover which fibers over the circle.

The first lecture will be an overview of 3-manifold topology in order to explain the meaning of Waldhausen's virtual Haken conjecture and Thurston's virtual fibering conjecture, and how they relate to other problems in 3-manifold theory.

The lectures are completely self-contained-this is a good reference book on modern questions of general topology and can serve as an introduction to the applications of set theory and infinite combinatorics. Teaching mathematics in colleges and universities: case studies Lectures on three-manifold topology by William H Jaco.

For those genuinely interested in understanding the proof of the 4-dimensional Poincare conjecture, and for those who need a more geometric, intuitive view of some of the main results in topological 4-manifolds, rather than one based on the heavy machinery of algebraic topology, this book is an excellent s: 1.

The goal of this part of the book is to teach the language of math-ematics. More speciﬁcally, one of its most important components: the language of set-theoretic topology, which treats the basic notions related to continuity.

The term general topology means: this is the topology that is needed and used by most mathematicians. A permanent. Hempel's book remains an ideal text to learn about the world of 3-manifolds. The prerequisites are few and are typical of a beginning graduate student.
