Robert Meyerhoff (Boston College): Understanding 3-Manifolds

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

A 3-manifold is a space that locally looks like 3-dimensional space.
3-manifolds exist in great variety and abundance, and the collection of
all 3-manifolds is bewildering and hard to understand. After a discussion
of general properties of 3-manifolds an approach to organizing 3-manifolds
will be presented where the organizing theme involves the geometric construction
known as Dehn Surgery.
