Aspects of Low Dimensional Manifolds, Y. Matsumoto and S. Morita, eds. (Tokyo: Mathematical Society of Japan, 1992)
This volume consists of ten original papers written by experts in various aspects of low dimensional topology. The topics covered by them include knots and links, 3-dimensional hyperbolic geometry, conformally flat structures on 3-manifolds, Floer homology, the geometry and topology of 4-manifolds. These are among the main subjects in current topology which is now making rapid progress. The editors hope that this volume would also serve as a quick up-to-date introduction to these areas.
Related to this volume, three symposiums were held during 1987-1989, which were supported by the Grant-in-Aid for Cooperative Research, the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, Japan.
