Vagn Lundsgaard Hansen's Braids and Coverings: Selected Topics (London Mathematical PDF

By Vagn Lundsgaard Hansen

This ebook relies on a graduate direction taught via the writer on the collage of Maryland, united states. The lecture notes were revised and augmented through examples. The paintings falls into strands. the 1st chapters enhance the user-friendly thought of Artin Braid teams either geometrically and through homotopy thought, and talk about the hyperlink among knot concept and the combinatorics of braid teams via Markov's Theorem. the ultimate chapters provide a close research of polynomial protecting maps, that may be seen as a homomorphism of the basic staff of the bottom area into the Artin braid workforce on n strings. This ebook can be of curiosity to either topologists and algebraists operating in braid theory.
