Four-manifolds, geometries and knots

The goal of this book is to characterize algebraically the closed 4-manifolds that fibre nontrivially or admit geometries in the sense of Thurston, or which are obtained by surgery on 2-knots, and to

The geometry of abstract groups and their splittings

A survey of splitting theorems for abstract groups and their applications. Topics covered include preliminaries, early results, Bass-Serre theory, the structure of G-trees, Serre's applications to

Limit groups and Makanin-Razborov diagrams for hyperbolic groups

This thesis gives a detailed description of Zlil Sela’s construction of Makanin-Razborov diagrams which describe Hom(G,Γ), the set of all homomorphisms from G to Γ, where G is a finitely generated

Bounding the complexity of simplicial group actions on trees

We shall state the main result of this paper in terms of group actions on simplicial trees. Suppose that a group G acts simplicially on a tree T without inversions. For brevity we say that Tis a

Quadratic Forms in Knot Theory

The purpose of this survey article is to show how quadratic and hermitian forms can give us geometric results in knot theory. In particular, we shall look at the knot cobordism groups, at questions

Makanin–Razborov diagrams for hyperbolic groups

We give a detailed account of Zlil Sela’s construction of Makanin–Razborov diagrams describing Hom(G, Γ) whereG is a finitely generated group and Γ is a hyperbolic group. We also deal with the case

Décomposition d'un groupe en produit libre ou somme amalgamée.

Question. On peut definir pour tout groupe G et tout entier / un entier Sr(G), en disant que St(G) ^ k si et seulement si il existe un polyedre simplicial P /-connexe muni d'une action de G, dont la

ON TOPOLOGICALLY UNKNOTTED SPHERES

1. B. Mazur [10] and M. Brown [2] have contributed to a general theorem on the unknotting of (n - 1)-spheres in the n-sphere. In its most recent form [4], it states that if X is a subset of the

DECOMPOSITION OF KNOTS

Every knot of codimension 2 (smooth, piecewise linear or locally flat) is proved to decompose into a connected sum of a finite number of indecomposable knots. Bibliography: 15 titles.
