Abstract

In Chapters 1 and 6 we have seen how to solve a wide variety of problems concerning 2-manifolds. The success of 2-manifold topology is quite surprising when compared with dimension 3, where almost no algorithms are known. To see the contrast more clearly, let us first review what we know about 2-manifolds.
