This book is essentially self-contained and requires only a basic abstract algebra course as background. The book includes and extends much of the classical theory of \(SL(2)\) representations of groups.
Readers will find \(SL(2)\)Representations of Finitely Presented Groups relevant to geometric theory of three dimensional manifolds, representations of infinite groups, and invariant theory.
Researchers in invariant theory, representation theory of infinite groups, and applications of group representation theory to low dimensional topology.
"A useful algebraic framework for students and researchers concerned with representation spaces. Apart from the contribution it offers to the algebraic insight in the topic it should be helpful especially for topologists who look at knots or 3-manifolds from the Culler-Shalen perspective ... the monographis of considerable merit."
