The Geometry and Topology of     Three Manifolds by William P. Thurston

The Geometry and Topology of Three Manifolds by William P. Thurston

The intent of this lecture note is to describe the very strong connection between geometry and lowdimensional topology in a way which will be useful and accessible to graduate students and mathematicians working in related fields, particularly 3-manifolds and Kleinian groups.
