The Root Extraction Problem for Generic Braids

Abstract : We show that, generically, finding the k-th root of a braid is very fast. More precisely, we provide an algorithm which, given a braid x on n strands and canonical length l, and an integer k>1 , computes a k-th root of x, if it exists, or guarantees that such a root does not exist. The generic-case complexity of this algorithm is O(l(l+n)n3logn) . The non-generic cases are treated using a previously known algorithm by Sang-Jin Lee. This algorithm uses the fact that the ultra summit set of a braid is, generically, very small and symmetric (through conjugation by the Garside element Δ ), consisting of either a single orbit conjugated to itself by Δ or two orbits conjugated to each other by Δ .
