This ebook provides a set of papers on comparable issues: topology of knots and knot-like items (such as curves on surfaces) and topology of Legendrian knots and hyperlinks in three-d touch manifolds. Featured is the paintings of overseas specialists in knot idea ('quantum' knot invariants, knot invariants of finite type), in symplectic and phone topology, and in singularity concept. The interaction of numerous equipment from those fields makes this quantity distinct within the examine of Legendrian knots and knot-like items reminiscent of wave fronts. a very attractive characteristic of the amount is its overseas value. the amount effectively embodies an excellent collaborative attempt by means of all over the world specialists from Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Poland, Russia, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S.
