  • Filomena Pisani A.S.L Bari


braid, symmetric group, braid group, pure braid group, left and right braid group


In this paper some properties valid for the Artin braid group, the pure braid group and the left and right braid groups are proved. We present relationships between the braid group and the pure braid group and the braid group and the left and right braid group.
