    The Kontsevich integral is a rather beautiful and canonical beast: it’s “just” the Dyson formula for the holonomy of the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov connection. The latter, in turn, is itself rather beautiful in its universal form with values in horizontal chord diagrams.

    This nice state of affairs didn’t really come across in what we had in the entry. In an attempt to begin to improve on this, I have started a new subsection Definition – On braids.

    The previous material is currently still there under Definition – On knots, but I hope to adjust and streamline this.

    Since these core definitions really belong to several entries, such as also to Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov connection, braid representation and configuration space of points, I’ll give it a bare entry

    to be !include-ed into these related entries
