After reading few lecture notes on knot theory, I have developed a genuine interest in Low dimensional Topology. So, I am trying to know about how should I self study it. I would like to know about the subjects I should cover in order to start research in some area of low dimensional topology. Freedman and Quinn's book is also good. Hempel. This volume consists of the proceedings of a conference held at the University College of North Wales (Bangor) in July of 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 R. Brown. I am interested in all areas of low-dimensional Topology. More specifically, I am interested in trisections of smooth 4-manifolds (with and without boundary), generic maps and Lefschetz fibrations on 4-manifolds, symplectic and contact topology, open book decompositions of 3-manifolds, and anything to do with Heegaard splittings of 3-manifolds.

A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology. University of Chicago Press, [$18] — Good for getting the big picture. Perhaps not as easy for a beginner as the preceding book. • G E Bredon. Topology and Geometry. Springer GTM , [$70] — Includes basics on smooth manifolds, and even some point-set topology. High-dimensional geometric topology. In high-dimensional topology, characteristic classes are a basic invariant, and surgery theory is a key theory. A characteristic class is a way of associating to each principal bundle on a topological space X a cohomology class of X.

Today's topic is Low dimensional topology. I'm not trying to write a book about mathematics for mathematicians, I'm trying to write a book about physics for mathematicians; of course, symplectic structures will eventually make an appearance.
