2021 arXiv   pre-print
After a description of some of the theory of one-relator groups, an important part of combinatorial group theory, the natural division line into the torsion and torsion-free case for such groups is described  ...  This culminates in a statement of and general discussion about the B. B. Newman Spelling Theorem and its importance.  ...  Newman Spelling Theorem With a sufficient overview of some of the relevant theory of one-relator groups, it is now possible to present arguably the most significant result for one-relator groups with torsion  ...

Research announcement: The structure of groups with a quasiconvex hierarchy

Daniel Wise
2009 Electronic Research Announcements in Mathematical Sciences  
It follows that every quasiconvex subgroup of G is a virtual retract, and is hence separable. The results are applied to certain 3-manifold and one-relator groups.  ...  Let G be a word-hyperbolic group with a quasiconvex hierarchy. We show that G has a finite index subgroup G that embeds as a quasiconvex subgroup of a right-angled Artin group.  ...  In this case, all torsion is conjugate into W ∼ = Z n and the group is virtually torsion-free. We refer to [32] for more information on one-relator groups.  ...

The outer automorphism groups of two-generator, one-relator groups with torsion

Alan D. Logan
2016 Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society  
The main result of this paper is a complete classification of the outer automorphism groups of two-generator, one-relator groups with torsion.  ...  To this classification we apply recent algorithmic results of Dahmani--Guirardel, which yields an algorithm to compute the isomorphism class of the outer automorphism group of a given two-generator, one-relator  ...  Secondly, every two-generator subgroup of a one-relator group with torsion is either a free group or a two-generator, one-relator group with torsion [Pri77b] . Main theorem.  ...

Some small aspherical spaces

Thus, X /Z(a) is homeomorphic to C(P'). Since X is aspherical and the projection X -> X /Z(a) = C(P') is a covering map, C(P') is aspherical.  ...  One relator presentations Let P: {x u ---,x n ; R} be a one relator presentation for the group G.  ...  A similar argument was made by Cockcoft in [2] .
