**Description**:

The purpose of this paper is to give an introduction to virtual knot theory and to record a collection of research problems that the authors have found fascinating. The second section of the paper introduces the theory and discusses some problems in that context.

**Foliations and the Geometry of 3-manifolds**

**Oxford University Press**

The book gives 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.
