About the Authors
  • This volume consists of the proceedings of a conference held at the University College of North Wales (Bangor) in July of 1979. 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.
