# Drinfeld associators, Braid groups and explicit solutions of the Kashiwara–Vergne equations

@article{Alekseev2009DrinfeldAB, title={Drinfeld associators, Braid groups and explicit solutions of the Kashiwara–Vergne equations}, author={A. Alekseev and Benjamin Enriquez and Charles Torossian}, journal={Publications math{\'e}matiques de l'IH{\'E}S}, year={2009}, volume={112}, pages={143-189} }

The Kashiwara–Vergne (KV) conjecture states the existence of solutions of a pair of equations related with the Campbell–Baker–Hausdorff series. It was solved by Meinrenken and the first author over ℝ, and in a formal version, by two of the authors over a field of characteristic 0. In this paper, we give a simple and explicit formula for a map from the set of Drinfeld associators to the set of solutions of the formal KV equations. Both sets are torsors under the actions of prounipotent groups…
