By Kunio Murasugi,B. Kurpita

In bankruptcy 6, we describe the concept that of braid equivalence from the topological viewpoint. this may lead us to a brand new notion braid homotopy that's mentioned totally within the subsequent bankruptcy. As simply pointed out, in bankruptcy 7, we will talk about the adaptation among braid equivalence and braid homotopy. additionally during this bankruptcy, we outline a homotopy braid invariant that seems to be the so-called Milnor quantity. bankruptcy eight is a brief evaluate of knot idea, together with Alexander's theorem. whereas, Chapters nine is dedicated to Markov's theorem, which permits the appliance of this conception to different fields. This was once one of many motivations Artin had in brain whilst he started learning braid thought. In bankruptcy 10, we talk about the first purposes of braid thought to knot thought, together with the advent of an important invariants of knot concept, the Alexander polynomial and the Jones polynomial. In bankruptcy eleven, stimulated by way of Dirac's string challenge, the standard braid crew is generalized to the braid teams of assorted surfaces. We talk about those teams from an intuitive and diagrammatic standpoint. within the final brief bankruptcy 12, we current with out facts one theorem, as a result of Gorin and Lin [GoL] , that may be a outstanding software of braid concept to the speculation of algebraic equations.
