Introduction to Braided Geometry and q-Minkowski Space
by

Publisher: arXiv
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.

In this essay we wish to embark on the telling of a story which, almost certainly, stands only at its beginning. We shall discuss the links and the interaction between one very old subject, physics, and a much newer one, topology.
