These notes discuss geometric and combinatorial topology and includes material on the classification of surfaces, embedding graphs on surfaces, map colouring and knot theory. This latter topic includes material on the Alexander group of a knot, published here for the first time. This requires a basic knowledge of finitely presented abelian groups but a chapter is included to provide the relevant background knowledge for those who have never studied group theory.
