Title: A quick introduction to knots and braids

Abstract: In this talk I will do an overview on the theory of knots and braids. The idea is to define what these objects are and to present two major theorems relating them by just giving an intuition behind their proof. If possible, I will also talk about how these objects can naturally appear in the dynamics of point masses.

The seminar will take place in Room S08 at the Faculty of Sciences.
