Book Description
This unique reference, aimed at research topologists, gives an exposition of the 'pseudoAnosov' theory of foliations of 3manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.
Significant themes returned to throughout the text include the importance of geometry, especially the hyperbolic geometry of surfaces, the importance of monotonicity, especially in 1dimensional and codimensional dynamics, and combinatorial approximation, using finite combinatorical objects such as traintracks, branched surfaces and hierarchies to carry more complicated continuous objects.
The book is written in such a way that probably every reader with some interest in geometry will be able to find something interesting for him/her.
About the Authors Danny Calegari is a mathematician who is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago. His research interests include geometry, dynamical systems, lowdimensional topology, and geometric group theory.

Quasiprojective Moduli for Polarized Manifolds (Eckart Viehweg)
This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasiprojective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms.

Manifolds  Current Research Areas (Paul Bracken)
This book cover a number of subjects which will be of interest to workers in these areas. It is hoped that the papers here will be able to provide a useful resource for researchers with regard to current fields of research in this important area.

Introduction to Topology (Bert Mendelson, et al.)
This concise book offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology. The book's principal aim is to provide a simple, thorough survey of elementary topics in the study of collections of objects, or sets, that possess a mathematical structure.

Elementary Topology: Problem Textbook (O.Ya.Viro, et al.)
This textbook on elementary topology contains a detailed introduction to general topology and an introduction to algebraic topology via its most classical and elementary segment centered at the notions of fundamental group and covering space.

Topology without Tears (Sidney A. Morris)
General topology is the branch of topology dealing with the basic settheoretic definitions and constructions used in topology. The aim of this is to provide a thorough grouding of general topology. It offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology.
