Almost all one-relator groups with at least three generators are residually finite

Mark V. Sapir, Iva Špakulová (2011)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We prove that with probability tending to 1, a one-relator group with at least three generators and the relator of length n is residually finite, is a virtually residually (finite p -)group for all sufficiently large p , and is coherent. The proof uses both combinatorial group theory and non-trivial results about Brownian motions.

Conjugacy pinched and cyclically pinched one-relator groups.

Benjamin Fine, Gerhard Rosenberger, Michael Stille (1997)

Revista Matemática de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Here we consider two classes of torsion-free one-relator groups which have proved quite amenable to study-the cyclically pinched one-relator groups and the conjugacy pinched one-relator groups. The former is the class of groups which are free products of free groups with cyclic amalgamations while the latter is the class of HNN extensions of free groups with cyclic associated subgroups. Both are generalizations of surface groups. We compare and contrast results in these classes relative to n-freeness,...

Diophantine geometry over groups I : Makanin-Razborov diagrams

Zlil Sela (2001)

Publications Mathématiques de l'IHÉS

This paper is the first in a sequence on the structure of sets of solutions to systems of equations in a free group, projections of such sets, and the structure of elementary sets defined over a free group. In the first paper we present the (canonical) Makanin-Razborov diagram that encodes the set of solutions of a system of equations. We continue by studying parametric families of sets of solutions, and associate with such a family a canonical graded Makanin-Razborov diagram, that encodes the collection...
