This volume presents some of the lectures and research during the special programme held at the Newton Institute in 1994. The two parts each contain a mix of substantial expository articles and research papers that outline important and topical ideas. Many of the results have not been presented before, and the lectures on Floer homology is the first avaliable in book form.Symplectic methods are one of the most active areas of research in mathematics currently, and this volume will attract much attention.61-62. This result can be generalised from S^bundles to Seifert fibrations, i.e. to manifolds M 3 on which 51 operates with non-trivial isotopy. Here we must introduce a correction term into the inequality above to allow for the finite number ofanbsp;...
