Low-Dimensional Topology

Low-dimensional topology usually deals with objects that are 2-, 3-, or 4-dimensional in nature. Properly speaking, low-dimensional topology should be part of Differential Topology, but the general machinery of Algebraic and Differential Topology gives only limited information. This fact is particularly noticeable in dimensions three and four, and so alternative specialized methods have evolved.
