Abstract:We use the partial description of cohomology to reconstruct the tree T from a given four strand tree braid group B 4T up to homeomorphism. Thus tree braid groups B4T and trees T (up to homeomorphism) are in bijective correspondence. We use this bijection to solve a version of the isomorphism problem for tree braid groups with n = 4 strands.
