Homology manifolds were developed in the 20th century to give a precise setting for Poincare's ideas on duality. They are investigated using algebraic and geometric methods. This volume is the proceedings of a workshop held in 2003.

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.

by
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.
