The purpose of these notes is to introduce the reader to the question of how many geometrically distinct foliations, if any, can be constructed on a given manifold.

The notes are based on lectures given in a Regional Conference at Washington University in January 1975.


"A remarkable and relatively deep introduction and survey of many aspects of the very active area of the quantitative theory of foliations."

-- Connor Lazarov, Mathematical Reviews
