A wide variety of topics are linked with surface topology, such as graph theory, group theory, vector field theory and plane Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry. Each topic is treated from its beginnings, thus offering a bird's eye view of many branches of mathematics. The author's introductions are presented in simple terms and, for those who wish to extend their knowledge of the topics discussed, a bibliography is provided."
