520    This book contains contributions from a workshop on 
       topology and geometry of polymers, held at the IMA in June
       1996, which brought together topologists, 
       combinatorialists, theoretical physicists and polymer 
       scientists, with a common interest in polymer topology. 
       Polymers can be highly self-entangled even in dilute 
       solution. In the melt the inter- and intra-chain 
       entanglements can dominate the rheological properties of 
       these phenomena. Although the possibility of knotting in 
       ring polymers has been recognized for more than thirty 
       years it is only recently that the powerful methods of 
       algebraic topology have been used in treating models of 
       polymers. This book contains a series of chapters which 
       review the current state of the field and give an up to 
       date account of what is known and perhaps more importantly,
       what is still unknown. The field abounds with open 
       problems. The book is of interest to workers in polymer 
       statistical mechanics but will also be useful as an 
       introduction to topological methods for polymer scientists,
       and will introduce mathematicians to an area of science 
       where topological approaches are making a substantial
