Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 247)

We briefly discuss a family of finite-dimensional quotients of the braid group algebras due to J. Murakami, J. Birman, and H. Wenzl. We also outline an interpretation of the Lawrence—Krammer—Bigelow representation of Section 3.5 in terms of representations of these algebras.
