**Research:**
Research Interests:
- knot theory and low-dimensional topology

- topology of real algebraic curves

Here is my research publication list.

Since 1995 I have posted my preprints on the Mathematics ArXiv. The published versions of these papers contain
subsequent changes not reflected in the preprints.

Here is a PDF file of a mathematica notebook which extends a list of 3-manifolds with small Frohman Kania-Bartoszynska ideals in the paper.
