This volume is a collection of survey articles by leading experts on a cross- section of present-day knot theory. This Handbook of knot theory contains ten surveys and illustrates that knot theory holds a special place in mathematics. These articles contain a vast range of knowledge. At the end of the book there are an author index and a subject index that help us in reading these articles.
The articles of this volume will be reviewed individually.
