Artin covers of the braid groups

Meirav Amram, Ruth Lawrence and Uzi Vishne

Abstract: Computation of fundamental groups of Galois covers recently led to the construction and analysis of Coxeter covers if the symmetric groups [RTV]. In this paper we consider analog covers of Artin's braid groups, and completely describe the induced geometric extensions of the braid group.
