Abstract : This is a summary of four Colloquium Lectures given at the meeting of the American Mathematical Society in Laramie in 1970. The first section discusses the recent solution of the monotone mapping theorem. The second discusses difficulty and headway in extending results about 3-manifolds to those of higher dimensions. The last two sections discuss approximation theorems and their applications. (Author)
