A homotopy equivalence between 3-manifolds will be called exotic if it cannot be deformed into a homeomorphism. It is well-known that such homotopy equivalences exist between 3-manifolds with non-empty boundaries. A theorem is stated in the chapter that can be considered as a classification of exotic homotopy equivalences between 3-manifolds.

I browsed Hempel's book, 3-manifolds, but a lot of PL topology seems to be assumed. As pointed out when I asked the same question on xchange, it is probably the case for any book on 3-manifods, so a good reference on PL topology as complement would be welcome. Questions tagged [3-manifolds] I've heard you need a good amount of PL topology. I have read Jennifer Schulten's book and found it accessible, but I've heard Hempel is tough. soft-question 3-manifolds textbook-recommendation. asked Jun 9 '19 at James Baxter.

For many years, John Hempel's book has been a standard text on the topology of 3-manifolds. Even though the field has grown tremendously during that time, the book remains one of the best and most popular introductions to the subject. The theme of this book is the role of the fundamental group in determining the topology of a given 3-manifold.5/5(2).

Notes on Basic 3-Manifold Topology. Sometime in the 's I started writing a book on 3-manifolds, but got sidetracked on the algebraic topology books described elsewhere on this website. The little that exists of the 3-manifolds book 3-manifolds book below for a table of contents) is rather crude and unpolished, and doesn't cover a lot of material, but.

The book finishes with a discussion of topics relevant to viewing 3-manifolds via the curve complex. With about figures and 3-manifolds book than exercises, 3-manifolds book book can serve as an excellent overview and starting point for the study of by: 9.

3-Manifolds. When it's finished, this book will be a modern introduction to 3-manifolds. This is a very big subject, and the book wants to be as short as possible, so there is no hope of being comprehensive (comprehensible is another matter).

Nevertheless, I've tried to be complete and rigorous (if brief) whenever mathematical reality allows. --Mathematical Reviews For many years, John Hempel's book has been a standard text on the topology of 3-manifolds. Even though the field has grown tremendously, the book remains one of the best and most popular introductions to the subject.

The theme of this book is the role of the fundamental group in determining the topology of a given 3. 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.

The book is divided into three parts. Part I presents a construction of 3-dimensional TQFTs and 2-dimensional modular functors from so-called modular categories. This gives a vast class of knot invariants and 3-manifold invariants as well as a class of linear representations of the mapping class groups of surfaces.

The influence of Thurston's hyperbolization theorem on the geometry and topology of 3-manifolds has been tremendous.
