Skeins and quantum SU N invariants of 3-manifolds, Math. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although explanations throughout the text are numerous and well-done.
Hardcoverpages. In particular, a knowledge of the very basic ideas of the fundamental group and of a simple homology theory is assumed; it is, kknot all, more important to know about those topics than about the intricacies of knot theory.
Raymond Lickorish No preview available – Thanks for telling us about the problem. Knot theory is a very important part of low dimensional topology and the study of 3 manifolds And recently in some areas of theoretical physics. The Reidemeister Torsion of 3-manifolds Liviu I.

The Best Books of By knot we mean a smooth embedding of a circle in intfoduction dimensional space. Motivation for such a topological study of knots is meant to come from a curiosity to lkckorish how the ge ometry of three-dimensional space can be explored lickorisu knotting phenomena using precise mathematics. The book has topological taste, full of geometric deductions and also it has lots of good problems to solve.

An Introduction to Knot Theory W. Each This volume is an introduction to mathematical knot theory – the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. Here, however, knot theory is considered as part of geometric topology. Three distinct techniques are employed: Rosen Don Zagier Carolyn S. We are interested to know if two different knots are isotopic or not notion of equivalencyand also we are interested in topological aspects of knots, We solve such problems mostly using invariants.
