This article surveys many standard results about the braid group, with emphasis on simplifying the usual algebraic proofs. We use van der Waerden’s trick to illuminate the Artin-Magnus proof of the classic presentation of the braid group considered as the algebraic mapping-class group of a disc with punctures. We give a simple, new proof of the(More)
