In Chapter I we study the equivalence of boundary incompressibility and homotopy boundary incompressibility of proper surfaces in a three-manifold. In Chapter II we study Heeraard solittinos of an irreducible three-manifold and additivity of Hepgaard genus. In Chapter III we characterize a Heeraard diagram by a family of loops not necessarily simple or disjoint.
