braidlab is a Matlab package for analyzing data using braids. It was designed to be fast, so it can be used on relatively large problems. It uses the object-oriented features of Matlab to provide a class for braids on punctured disks and a class for equivalence classes of simple closed loops. The growth of loops under iterated action by braids is used to compute the topological entropy of braids, as well as for determining the equality of braids.
braidlab was written by Jean-Luc Thiffeault and Marko Budisic.
