About this title

Synopsis:

This is the award-winning monograph of the Sunyer i Balaguer Prize 1999. The book presents recently discovered connections between Artin's braid groups and left self-distributive systems, which are sets equipped with a binary operation satisfying the identity x(yz) = (xy)(xz). Although not a comprehensive course, the exposition is self-contained, and many basic results are established. In particular, the first chapters include a thorough algebraic study of Artin's braid groups.

Book Description:

"In this book?P. Dehornoy has accomplished with remarkable success the task of presenting the area of interaction where Artin?s braid groups, left self-distributive systems (LD-systems) and set theory come together in a rigorous and clear manner?The exposition is self-contained and there are no prerequisites. A number of basic results about braid groups, self-distributive algebras, and set theory are provided."
