Definition

This group is the pure braid group of degree, denoted P_3. It is a subgroup of braid group:B3 comprising those braids that induce the identity permutation. In other words, it is the kernel of the natural homomorphism from B_3 to symmetric group:S3 that sends each braid to its induced permutation.

The group can also be defined by the following presentation:
