This book presents a collection of papers on two related topics: topology of knots and knot-like objects (such as curves on surfaces) and topology of Legendrian knots and links in 3-dimensional contact manifolds.
Featured is the work of international experts in knot theory ("quantum" knot invariants, knot invariants of finite type), in symplectic and contact topology, and in singularity theory. The interplay of diverse methods from these fields makes this volume unique in the study of Legendrian knots and knot-like objects such as wave fronts. A particularly enticing feature of the volume is its international significance. The volume successfully embodies a fine collaborative effort by worldwide experts from Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Poland, Russia, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S.
Graduate students and research mathematicians working in manifolds and cell complexes.
