This item is also sold as part of the following set: AMSIP/2  This is Part 1 of a twopart volume reflecting the proceedings of the 1993 Georgia International Topology Conference held at the University of Georgia during the month of August. The texts include research and expository articles and problem sets. The conference covered a wide variety of topics in geometric topology. Features:  Kirby's problem list, which contains a thorough description of the progress made on each of the problems and includes a very complete bibliography, makes the work useful for specialists and nonspecialists who want to learn about the progress made in many areas of topology. This list may serve as a reference work for decades to come.
 Gabai's problem list, which focuses on foliations and laminations of 3manifolds, collects for the first time in one paper definitions, results, and problems that may serve as a defining source in the subject area.
Titles in this series are copublished with International Press, Cambridge, MA. Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians, and physicists interested in manifolds and cell complexes.
