 Publisher's Summary
 This book contains the proceedings of the conference Geometry & Topology Down Under, held July 1122, 2011, at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia, in honour of Hyam Rubinstein. The main topic of the book is lowdimensional geometry and topology. It includes both survey articles based on courses presented at the conferences and research articles devoted to important questions in lowdimensional geometry. Together, these contributions show how methods from different fields of mathematics contribute to the study of 3manifolds and Gromov hyperbolic groups. It also contains a list of favourite problems by Hyam Rubinstein.
