Why are Braids Orderable?
by Patrick Dehornoy, at al.
Number of pages: 206
In the decade since the discovery that Artin's braid groups enjoy a left-invariant linear ordering, several quite different approaches have been applied to understand this phenomenon. This book is an account of those approaches, involving self-distributive algebra, uniform finite trees, combinatorial group theory, mapping class groups, laminations, and hyperbolic geometry.

In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

The book covers a set of interrelated topics, presenting a self-contained exposition of the algebra behind the Jones polynomial along with various excursions into related areas. Directed at graduate students and mathematicians.
by Willard Miller - Academic Press
A beginning graduate level book on applied group theory. Only those aspects of group theory are treated which are useful in the physical sciences, but the mathematical apparatus underlying the applications is presented with a high degree of rigor.
