We will study two fundamental algorithms in 3-manifold topology.  These are the unknot recognition (Haken) and sphere recognition problems (Rubinstein/Thompson).  These utilize the techniques of normal and almost normal surfaces.  If time permits, computational complexity of these algorithm will be discussed.
