Convex surface theory and bypasses are extremely powerful tools

for analyzing contact 3-manifolds. In particular they have been

successfully applied to many classification problems. After reviewing

convex surface theory in dimension three, we explain how to generalize many

of their properties to higher dimensions. This is joint work with Yang

Huang.
