In bankruptcy 6, we describe the idea that of braid equivalence from the topological perspective. it will lead us to a brand new proposal 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 overview of knot idea, together with Alexander's theorem. whereas, Chapters nine is dedicated to Markov's theorem, which permits the applying of this idea to different fields. This used to be one of many motivations Artin had in brain while he begun learning braid conception. In bankruptcy 10, we speak about the first functions of braid conception to knot conception, together with the creation of crucial invariants of knot concept, the Alexander polynomial and the Jones polynomial. In bankruptcy eleven, stimulated via Dirac's string challenge, the standard braid crew is generalized to the braid teams of varied surfaces. We talk about those teams from an intuitive and diagrammatic perspective. within the final brief bankruptcy 12, we current with no facts one theorem, because of Gorin and Lin [GoL] , that may be a miraculous software of braid idea to the idea of algebraic equations.
