**Notes on Basic 3-Manifold Topology**

by Allen Hatcher

2000**Number of pages**: 61

**Description**:

The little that exists of the 3-manifolds book (see below for a table of contents) is rather crude and unpolished, and doesn't cover a lot of material, but it does contain a few things that aren't readily available elsewhere, like the elementary form of the Jaco-Shalen/Johannson torus decomposition theorem.
