**Introduction to Braided Geometry and q-Minkowski Space**

by Shahn Majid

**Publisher**: arXiv 1994**Number of pages**: 60

**Description**:

We present a systematic introduction to the geometry of linear braided spaces. These are versions of Rn in which the coordinates xi have braid-statistics described by an R-matrix. From this starting point we survey the author's braided-approach to q-deformation.
