Artin introduced braid groups into mathematical literature in 1925. In the years since, and particularly in the last five to ten years, braid groups have played diverse and unexpected roles in widely different areas of mathematics, including knot theory, homotopy theory, singularity theory, and dynamical systems. Most recently, the area of operator algebras has brought striking new applications to knots and links. This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Artin's Braid Group, held at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in July 1986. This interdisciplinary conference brought together leading specialists in diverse areas of mathematics to discuss their discoveries and to exchange ideas and problems concerning this important and fundamental group. Because the proceedings present a mix of expository articles and new research, this volume will be of interest to graduate students and researchers who wish to learn more about braids, as well as more experienced workers in this area. The required background includes the basics of knot theory, group theory, and low-dimensional topology.

For centuries, the art of braiding has been passed down through generations. Braids are adorable, they do not cost anything to make and nothing is as relaxing as braiding new techniques with your girlfriends. The two teenage girls Laura and Marie run the Instagram page @HairAndNailsInspiration where they braid for more than 60.000 followers. In this book the two girls show how to do different hairstyles – all illustrated step by step. BRAIDS gives you 5 basic braids with links to a video guide, 10 braided styles and 5 braided party styles. The book also offers lots of tips and inspiration on how to braid with beads and flowers. Or just combine the basic styles and create brand new looks. This ebook is best suited for e-readers with zoom function and internet connection.

The central theme of this study is Artin's braid group and the many ways that the notion of a braid has proved to be important in low-dimensional topology. In Chapter 1 the author is concerned with the concept of a braid as a group of motions of points in a manifold. She studies structural and algebraic properties of the braid groups of two manifolds, and derives systems of defining relations for the braid groups of the plane and sphere. In Chapter 2 she focuses on the connections between the classical braid group and the classical knot problem. After reviewing basic results she proceeds to an exploration of some possible implications of the Garside and Markov theorems. Chapter 3 offers discussion of matrix representations of the free group and of subgroups of the automorphism group of the free group. These ideas come to a focus in the difficult open question of whether Burau's matrix representation of the braid group is faithful. Chapter 4 is a broad view of recent results on the connections between braid groups and mapping class groups of surfaces. Chapter 5 contains a brief discussion of the theory of "plats." Research problems are included in an appendix.
