Embeddings into efficient groups

A finite presentation F/N of a group G is called efficient if d F (N) = d(H 2 (G)) + d(F) -r(J/,(G)). A finitely presented group is called efficient if it admits an efficient presentation. We show that a finitely presented group embeds into an efficient group. 1991 Mathematics subject classification: 20F05.
