Topology of 3-manifolds

Fundamental groups of 3-manifolds, actions of groups on 3-manifolds. A-category of n-manifolds

Classification of n-manifolds of A-category 2 or 3, where A is a given closed manifold of dimension 1 or 2. This is related to the question of classifying closed n-manifolds that can be obtained as a union of two or three given submanifolds.
