About the Author

Dr. Christian Kassel is the director of CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in France), was the director of l'Institut de Recherche Mathematique Avancee from 2000 to 2004, and is an editor for the Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra. Kassel has numerous publications, including the book Quantum Groups in the Springer Gradate Texts in Mathematics series. Dr. Vladimir Turaev was also a professor at the CNRS and is currently at Indiana University in the Department of Mathematics.


From the reviews: "Details on ... braid groups are carefully provided by Kassel and Turaev's text Braid Groups. ... Braid Groups is very well written. The proofs are detailed, clear, and complete. ... The text is to be praised for its level of detail. ... For people ... who want to understand current research in braid group related areas, Braid Groups is an excellent, in fact indispensable, text." (Scott Taylor, The Mathematical Association of America, October, 2008) "This is a very useful, carefully written book that will bring the reader up to date with some of the recent important advances in the study of the braid groups and their generalizations. It continues the tradition of these high quality graduate texts in mathematics. The book could easily be used as a text for a year course on braid groups for graduate students, one advantage being that the chapters are largely independent of each other." (Stephen P. Humphries, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 e)
