"The Head and Tail of the Colored Jones Polynomial for Adequate Knots" with Cody Armond: arXiv Proc. AMS., (), No. 3, Knots, braids, and mapping class groups-papers dedicated to Joan S. Birman (New York, ). Abstract. We investigate Ihara-Selberg zeta functions of Cayley graphs for the Heisenberg group over finite rings ℤ/p n ℤ, where p is a prime. In order to do this, we must compute the Galois group of the covering obtained by reducing coordinates in ℤ/p n+1 ℤ modulo p n+ Ihara-Selberg zeta functions of the Heisenberg graph mod p n+1 factor as a product of Artin L-functions.

In this first of two papers, we develop a steady-state version of classical electrodynamics on the 3-sphere and in hyperbolic 3-space, including an explicit formula for the vector-valued Green’s operator, an explicit formula of Biot–Savart type for the magnetic field, and a corresponding Ampere’s law contained in Maxwell’s equations. We then use this to obtain explicit integral. Knots, braids, and mapping class groups--papers dedicated to Joan S. Birman: proceedings of a conference on low dimensional topology in honor of Joan S.

We construct an embedding of any right-angled Artin group G(Δ) defined by a graph Δ into a graph braid group. The number of strands required for the braid group is equal to the chromatic number of Δ. This construction yields an example of a hyperbolic surface subgroup embedded in a two strand planar graph braid .

Knots, Braids, and Mapping Class Groups-Papers Dedicated to Joan S. Birman. [Jane Gilman; William W Menasco; Xiao-Song Lin] -- There are a number of specialties in low-dimensional topology that can find in their "family tree" a common ancestry in the theory of surface mappings. These include knot theory as studied through.

Publication: AMS/IP Studies in Advanced Mathematics. 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 5/5(1). Joan S. Birman. Paperback ISBN 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.

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. This book is based on a graduate course taught by the author at the University of Maryland. The lecture notes have been revised and augmented by examples.

The first two chapters develop the elementary theory of Artin Braid groups, both geometrically and via homotopy theory, and discuss the link between knot theory and the combinatorics of braid groups through Markou's Theorem. Birman, Joan S. Braids, links, and mapping class groups / by Joan S.

The special beauty of the theory of braids stems from their attractive geometric nature and their close relations to other fundamental geometric objects, such as knots, links, mapping class groups of surfaces, and configuration spaces.

Adv. Math. 24, Amer. Math. Soc. () 29–  We define the mapping class group to be the quotient Mod(S) = Diff + (S)/Diff 0 (S), where Diff + (S) is the group of orientation preserving diffeomorphisms of S leaving marked points invariant and Diff 0 (S) is the component containing the identity.

It is often useful to note the natural map from Mod(S) to Out(Γ S) is injective.
