Let ξ be the standard contact structure in oriented \\sl I\\kernptR \\kernpt3=(ρ,θ,z) given as the kernel of the 1-form α=ρ2dθ+dz. A transverse knot is a knot that is transverse to the planes of this contact structure. In this paper we prove the Markov Theorem for transverse knots, which states that two transverse closed braids that are isotopic as transverse knots are also. 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 create new designs.

the following description. Transverse knots and links can be represented by closed braids. If we consider the contact manifold (S3;˘ std) described in Chapter 2, then any closed braid around z-axis can be made transverse to the contact planes. Bennequin proved that any transverse link in (S3;˘ std) is transversely isotopic to a closed braid [5].Cited by: 1. This book provides a comprehensive exposition of the theory of braids, beginning with the basic mathematical definitions and structures. 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 .

Properties of closed 3-braids and braid representations of links. [Alexander Stoimenow] -- This book studies diverse aspects of braid representations via knots and links. Complete classification results are illustrated for several properties through Xu's normal 3-braid form and the Hecke.

Joan S. Birman. Studying Links via Braids. One approach to this problem is to study links via the nested sequence of braid groups.

Since each link can be represented as a closed braid, and since braids form a group, this approach allows one to utilize familiar group invariants, such as group characters.

We introduce essential open book foliations by refining open book foliations, and develop technical estimates of the fractional Dehn twist coefficient (FDTC) of monodromies and the FDTC for closed braids, which we introduce as well. As applications, we quantitatively study the ‘gap’ between overtwisted contact structures and non-right-veering by: 9.

To simplify notation we consider a special case, assuming that: • The negative singularity of R,theb-arcs in R, and the positive singularity of R occur in that order in the ﬁbration.

We will establish that the order of the positive puncture and the positive. @article{4, mrkey = {}, author = {Birman, Joan S. and Menasco, William W.}, title = {Studying links via closed braids. {IV}. {C}omposite links and split links},Cited by: Two papers are in preparation.

We give an alternative proof of a theorem of Honda-Kazez-Matić that every non-right-veering open book supports an overtwisted contact structure. We also study two types of examples that show how overtwisted discs are embedded relative to right-veering open books.
