Erandi's Braids is a story about a mother and daughter who are struggling with money issues. It is Erandi's birthday and she wants a new dress but her mother needs a new net for catching fish. When they go the village, Erandi sees the perfect gifts but her mother can not afford both.4/5. A Study of Braids by Kunio Murasugi, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

A quite easy book on the links with Knot Theory is. Prasolov, Sossinsky - Knots, Links, Braids and 3-Manifolds, Translations of Mathematical Monographs , American Mathematical Society. but, really, any textbook on Knot Theory worth its price will talk about braids at some point. Knots, Links, Braids and 3-manifolds by V. V. Prasolov, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(4).

This book provides an extensive and self-contained presentation of quantum and related invariants of knots and 3-manifolds. Polynomial invariants of knots, such as the Jones and Alexander polynomials, are constructed as quantum invariants, i.e. invariants derived from representations of quantum groups and from the monodromy of solutions to the Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov g: braids.

The present book is a mixture of an introductory text book on the geometric-topological theory Cited by: 9. In the second part we show that the study of links (up to isotopy) in a 3-manifold can be restricted to the study of cosets of the braid groups Bn,m, which are subgroups of the usual braid groups Bn+ by: Knots, links, braids and 3-manifolds: An introduction to the new invariants.(AMS ) V.

Prasolov, A. Sossinsky This book is an introduction to the remarkable work of Vaughan Jones and Victor Vassiliev on knot and link invariants and its recent modifications and generalizations, including a mathematical treatment of Jones-Witten.

Here, we ﬁnd a representation of both 3-manifolds by braids of three strands (3-braids), which is the connection to the work of Bilson–Thompson and Gresnigt.

For some 3–manifolds we can do better and answer Question positively. Theorem Let Mbe one of the following manifolds (1) a lens space L(p;q) (this includes S3) with podd or with peven and q= 1 or q= p 1, (2) S1 S2, or (3) T3.

A contact structure ˘on Mcan be embedded in (S5;˘ std) if and only if its ﬁrst Chern class is zero, c 1(˘) = 0. Among the many topics explained in detail are: the braid group for various surfaces; the solution of the word problem for the braid group; braids in the context of knots and links (Alexander's theorem); Markov's theorem and its use in obtaining braid invariants; the connection between the Platonic solids (regular polyhedra) and braids; the use of braids in the solution of algebraic equations.

new technique to analyze general contact 3-manifolds, just like Bennequin’s foliations and Birman-Menasco’s braid foliations were used to study the standard tight contact 3-sphere. Our ﬁrst application of open book foliations to contact geometry is a self-linking number formula of an n-stranded braid, b, with respect to an open book (S,φ).

This book is a self-contained introduction to braid foliation techniques, which is a theory developed to study knots, links and surfaces in general 3-manifolds and more specifically in contact 3-manifolds.

With style and content accessible to beginning students interested in geometric topology, each chapter centers around a key theorem or theorems. This work provides the topological background and a preliminary study for the analogue of the 2-variable Jones polynomial as an invariant of oriented links in arbitrary 3- manifolds via normalized traces of appropriate algebras, and it is organized as follows: Chapter 1: Motivated by the study of the Jones polynomial, we produce and present a new algorithm for turning oriented link diagrams in.

In the study of knots and links in 3-manifolds, such as handlebodies, knot complements, closed, connected, oriented (c.c.o.) 3-manifolds, as well as in the study of 3-manifolds themselves, it can prove very useful to take an approach via braids, as the use of braids provides more structure and more control on the topological equivalence by: The Book of Braids: A New Approach to Creating Kumihimo.

Author: Jacqui Carey. Over specific examples are used throughout the book to illustrate each point, with the purpose of revealing the concepts behind the making of kumihimo, and explaining how these ideas can be employed to. We inititate the systematic study of Artin Presentations, (discovered in by González-Acuña), which characterize the fundamental groups of closed, orientable 3-manifolds, and form a discrete equivalent of the theory of open book decompositions with planar pages of such manifolds.

We list and prove the basic properties, state some fundamental problems and describe some of the advantages Cited by: 7. In Chapter 6, we describe the concept of braid equivalence from the topological point of view. This will lead us to a new concept braid homotopy that is discussed fully in the next chapter.

As just mentioned, in Chapter 7, we shall discuss the difference between braid equivalence and braid. A study of braids in 3-manifolds. By Sofia S. Lambropoulou. Abstract.
