“Constructing 3-manifolds by Dehn surgery along knots in S^3”
Abstract: Given a knot (or link) in S^3, it is possible to create a 3-manifold by means of Dehn Surgery. We will first introduce this construction, then show that converse also holds. Therefore, in theory, we can use knot theory to understand classification of 3-manifolds or vice versa.
