introduce hyperbolic geometry and its applications to two and threemanifolds
topology. Topics covered includes: Hyperbolic geometry, Hyperbolic space,
Hyperbolic manifolds, Thickthin decomposition, The sphere at infinity,
Surfaces, Teichmuller space, Topology of threemanifolds, Seifert manifolds,
Constructions of threemanifolds, Threemanifolds, Mostow rigidity theorem,
Hyperbolic Dehn filling.

Algebra and Topology.
 Topics in Geometric TopologyJacob LurieOnline  NA Pages  EnglishThis note covers some topics related to the
classification of manifolds. The emphasis will be on manifolds of low dimension
and cases where it is possible to obtain very precise information.
 History of Knot Theory  Knots Knotes Roberts J.D pdf  Algebraic and geometric TopologyUniversity
of EdinburghOnline  NA Pages  EnglishThis note covers the following topics: Semifree finite group
actions on compact manifolds, Torsion in Lgroups, Higher diagonal
approximations and skeletons of K(\pi,1)'s, Evaluating the Swan finiteness
obstruction for finite groups, A nonconnective delooping of algebraic
Ktheory, The algebraic theory of torsion, Equivariant Moore spaces,
Triviality of the involution on SK_1 for periodic groups, Algebraic Ktheory

theorem.
 Algebraic L theory and Topological Manifolds [PDF 363p]A. A. RanickiPDF  363 Pages  EnglishThe book is
divided into two parts, called Algebra and Topology. In principle, it is
possible to start with the Introduction, and go on to the topology in Part II, referring back to Part I for novel algebraic concepts.
 The Geometry and Topology of Three Manifolds by William P. ThurstonWilliam P.
ThurstonOnline  NA Pages  EnglishThe intent of this lecture note is to describe the very strong
connection between geometry and lowdimensional topology in a way which will
be useful and accessible to graduate students and mathematicians working in
related fields, particularly 3manifolds and Kleinian groups.
