An introduction to knot theory by W. B. Raymond Lickorish ( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is an introduction to mathematical knot theory - the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. It consists of a selection of topics that graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed: geometric topology manoeuvres; combinatorics; and algebraic topology. Each topic is developed until significant results are achieved, and chapters end with exercises and brief accounts of state-of-the-art research. What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, and while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds - as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial - are also included, presented in an easily understandable style. Thus, this constitutes a comprehensive introduction to the field, presenting modern developments in the context of classical material. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of the basic ideas of the fundamental group and simple homology theory, although explanations throughout the text are plentiful and well done. Written by an internationally known expert in the field, this volume will appeal to graduate students, mathematicians, and physicists with a mathematical background who wish to gain new insights in this area
Polyhedral handlebody theory : notes by Dallas Eugene Webster ( Book )

On the equivalent spines problem by Alberto Cavicchioli ( )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examples are constructed of compact, connected orientable 3-manifolds, regularly embedded in the 3-sphere $S^3$, with boundary a connected surface of genus $\ge 2$, which are not homeomorphic, although they possess homeomorphic spines. This solves a problem set forth in 1986 by D. Repovš
