Following a survey paper of Lackenby, we explore the complexity classes of various problems in 3-manifold theory. Examples include unknot detection being in NP and co-NP, link genus being NP-hard, and the homeomorphism problem being computable. We reference conjectures in computer science about various complexity classes to suggest which questions may have more efficient algorithms and which ones... More >

Which 4-manifold invariants can detect the Gluck twist? And, which 3-manifold invariants can detect the difference between surgeries on mutant knots? What is the most powerful topological quantum field theory (TQFT)? Guided by questions like these, we will look for new invariants of 3-manifolds and smooth 4-manifolds. Traditionally, a construction of many such invariants and TQFTs involves a... More >
