In knot theory by the 4-term relations or 4T-relations, for short, one means the following relations in the linear span of chord diagrams:

These are the relations respected by weight systems on chord diagrams.
For horizontal chord diagrams the 4T relations is the following:

When the linear span of horizontal chord diagrams is regarded as an associative algebra under concatenation of strands (here), this relation is the infinitesimal braid relation
The 4T-relations for round chord diagrams are the image of the 4T relations for horizontal chord diagrams under tracing horizontal to round chord diagrams:
Under the embedding of the set of round chord diagrams into the set of Jacobi diagrams, the STU-relations imply the 4T relations on round chord diagrams:
Using this, one finds that chord diagrams modulo 4T are Jacobi diagrams modulo STU:
