closed braid

closed braid

[¦klōzd ′brād]
(mathematics)
A modification of a braid in which plane curves are added that connect each of the n points on one of the parallel lines specified in the definition of the braid to one of the n points on the other in such a way that no two of these curves intersect or terminate at the same point, and the parallel lines themselves are deleted.
