This book grew out of a graduate course on 3-manifolds and is intended for a mathematically experienced audience that is new to low-dimensional topology. The exposition begins with the definition of a manifold, explores possible additional structures on manifolds, discusses the classification of surfaces, introduces key foundational results for 3-manifolds, and provides an overview of knot theory. It then continues with more specialized topics by briefly considering triangulations of 3-manifolds, normal surface theory, and Heegaard splittings. The book finishes with a discussion of topics relevant to viewing 3-manifolds via the curve complex. With about 250 figures and more than 200 exercises, this book can serve as an excellent overview and starting point for the study of 3-manifolds.

About the Author:

Jennifer Schultens , University of California, Davis, CA.

Review:

...Schultens has written an excellent book that richly illustrates the scope of her chosen subject. It is very well written, clear and explicit in its presentation. There are plenty of exercises, and the book has been laboratory tested, so to speak, since it grew out of Schultens' graduate course on 3-manifolds at Emory University ... it will also serve very well indeed as a source for self-study. --MAA Reviews

The present book is a mixture of an introductory text book on the geometric-topological theory of 3-manifolds and a guide to some recent developments; it contains a lot of information and is written in a nice and intuitive way which makes it pleasant to read. --Zentralblatt Math
