In this paper we discuss topological BF theories in 3 and 4 dimensions. Observables are associated to ordinary knots and links (in 3 dimensions) and to 2-knots (in 4 dimensions). The vacuum expectation values of such observables give a wide range of invariants. Here we consider mainly the 3 dimensional case, where these invariants include Alexander polynomials, HOMFLY polynomials and Kontsevich integrals. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
