We describe first-order logic elementary embeddings in a torsion-free hyperbolic group in terms of Sela’s hyperbolic towers. Thus, if $H$ embeds elementarily in a torsion free hyperbolic group $\Gamma $, we show that the group $\Gamma $ can be obtained by successive amalgamations of groups of surfaces with boundary to a free product of $H$ with some free group and groups of closed surfaces. This gives as a corollary that an elementary subgroup of a finitely generated free group is a free factor. We also consider the...
