The Geometry & Topology Monographs series is intended for research monographs, for refereed conference proceedings and for similar collections. The purpose of Geometry & Topology is the advancement of mathematics. Editors evaluate submitted papers strictly on the basis of scientific merit, without regard to authors’ nationality, country of residence, institutional affiliation, sex, ethnic origin, or political views.
