Description:
The purpose of this book is to give an exposition of the "pseudo-Anosov" theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.

These pages are really just an early draft of the initial chapters of a real book on 3-manifolds. The text does contain a few things that aren't readily available elsewhere, like the Jaco-Shalen/Johannson torus decomposition theorem.

Geometry of Surfaces by Nigel Hitchin is a textbook on surfaces. However the author is also going to try and consider surfaces intrinsically, or abstractly, and not necessarily embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space.
