Braid groups | Representation theory

In mathematics, an affine braid group is a braid group associated to an affine Coxeter system. Their group rings have quotients called affine Hecke algebras. They are subgroups of double affine braid groups. (Wikipedia).

Computational Aspects in the Braid Group and Applications to Cryptography - Mina Teicher

Mina Teicher Bar-Ilan University; Member, School of Mathematics March 12, 2012 The braid group on n strands may be viewed as an infinite analog of the symmetric group on n elements with additional topological phenomena. It appears in several areas of mathematics, physics and computer scien

Symmetric Groups (Abstract Algebra)

Symmetric groups are some of the most essential types of finite groups. A symmetric group is the group of permutations on a set. The group of permutations on a set of n-elements is denoted S_n. Symmetric groups capture the history of abstract algebra, provide a wide range of examples in

Cyclic Groups (Abstract Algebra)

Cyclic groups are the building blocks of abelian groups. There are finite and infinite cyclic groups. In this video we will define cyclic groups, give a list of all cyclic groups, talk about the name “cyclic,” and see why they are so essential in abstract algebra. Be sure to subscribe s
