Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"The book … is devoted to the theory of knotted surfaces in R4 and possesses all the important features of a book which promises to become a classic. … The authors of the book are among the main founders of this theory and have contributed a great deal to its development. … the book may serve as a good introduction for a more or less experienced reader into the beautiful world of knotted surfaces."

Sergej V. Matveev, Mathematical Reviews, 2005e

"The book treats the theory of knotting of surfaces in 4-space presenting up to date results and research … . Each notion is precisely defined with a short historical account included. The results are gradually introduced, illustrated by examples, and original references are always cited. The reader is advised if a result has a higher dimensional counterpart. The book contains an exhaustive list of references and the index. It represents a nice, useful and reliable encyclopaedic presentation of the above mentioned subject … ."

Ivan Ivanšic, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1078, 2006
