We study the Birman exact sequence for compact 3‐manifolds, obtaining a complete picture of the relationship between the mapping class group of the manifold and the mapping class group of the submanifold obtained by deleting an interior point. This covers both orientable manifolds and non‐orientable ones.

Cutting and Pasting in the Torelli subgroup of Out($F_n$)
Using ideas from 3-manifolds, Hatcher–Wahl defined a notion of automorphism groups of free groups with boundary. We study their Torelli subgroups, adapting ideas introduced by Putman for surface

Point-pushing actions for manifolds with boundary
Given a manifold M and a point in its interior, the point-pushing map describes a diffeomorphism that pushes the point along a closed path. This defines a homomorphism from the fundamental group of M
Point-pushing actions and configuration-mapping spaces
Given a manifold $M$ and a point in its interior, the point-pushing map describes a diffeomorphism that pushes the point along a closed path. This defines a homomorphism from the fundamental group of

We summarize properties of 3-manifold groups, with a particular focus on the consequences of the recent results of Ian Agol, Jeremy Kahn, Vladimir Markovic and Dani Wise.
The virtual Haken conjecture
We prove that cubulated hyperbolic groups are virtually special. The proof relies on results of Haglund and Wise which also imply that they are linear groups, and quasi-convex subgroups are

We review the history of the proof of the Seifert fiber space theorem, as well as its motivations in 3-manifold topology and its generalizations.
RECOGNIZING NONORIENTABLE SEIFERT BUNDLES
Roughly speaking, a compact, orientable, irreducible 3-manifold M with infinite fundamental group is a Seifert fiber space, if either 1) π1M contains a nontrivial, cyclic, normal subgroup (the
A primer on mapping class groups
Given a compact connected orientable surface S there are two fundamental objects attached: a group and a space. The group is the mapping class group of S, denoted by Mod(S). This group is defined by
The Seifert Fiber Space Conjecture and Torus Theorem for Nonorientable 3-Manifolds
Abstract The Seifert-fiber-space conjecture for nonorientable 3-manifolds states that if M denotes a compact, irreducible, nonorientable 3-manifold that is not a fake P2 x S1 , if π1 M is infinite
Braids, Links, and Mapping Class Groups.
The central theme of this study is Artin's braid group and the many ways that the notion of a braid has proved to be important in low-dimensional topology. In Chapter 1 the author is concerned with
The Compact 3-Manifolds Covered by S 2 × R 1
The classification of all free actions by a finite group on S2 x S1 follows from the observation that there exist only four compact 3manifolds which have S2 x R 1 for a universal covering space.
The geometries of 3-manifolds
The theory of 3-manifolds has been revolutionised in the last few years by work of Thurston [66-70]. He has shown that geometry has an important role to play in the theory in addition to the use of
