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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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."
