Topology in dimensions 1, 2 and 3
Abstract: We will look at some of the surprising connections between low-dimensional manifolds. In particular, we will focus on the classification problem, which aims to build a periodic table of all manifolds up to homeomorphism. To tackle some of the difficulties of doing this in dimension 3, we will resort to looking at lower dimensional submanifolds and how they sit inside.
