Applications of Knot Theory - Dorothy Buck and Erica Flapan
This book is the result of an AMS Short Course on Knots and Physics that was held in San Francisco (January 1994). The range of the course went beyond knots to the study of invariants of low dimensional manifolds and extensions of this work to four manifolds and to higher dimensions. The authors use ideas and methods of mathematical physics to extract topological information about knots and manifolds.
Knots and Physics would be an excellent supplement to a course on algebraic topology or a physics course on field theory.
Researchers and graduate students in mathematics and physics.
