This quantity of the EMS includes components. the 1st entitled Combinatorial team thought and primary teams, written via Collins and Zieschang, presents a readable and accomplished description of that a part of team thought which has its roots in topology within the concept of the elemental staff and the idea of discrete teams of adjustments. during the emphasis is at the wealthy interaction among the algebra and the topology and geometry. the second one half by way of Grigorchuk and Kurchanov is a survey of contemporary paintings on teams with regards to topological manifolds, facing equations in teams, quite in floor teams and unfastened teams, a learn when it comes to teams of Heegaard decompositions and algorithmic elements of the Poincaré conjecture, in addition to the suggestion of the expansion of teams. The authors have incorporated an inventory of open difficulties, a few of that have no longer been thought of formerly. either elements include quite a few examples, outlines of proofs and entire references to the literature. The ebook may be very invaluable as a reference and consultant to researchers and graduate scholars in algebra and topology.

Collins, H. ,c~) are free on the displayed generators and so G is given as an HNN-extension with Go as base group and a as stable letter. It follows immediately that {b, c} (= {bo, co}) is a basis for a free subgroup of G. To seethat {a, c} is also a basis for a free subgroup, note firstly that any reduced word W giving a relation over {a, c} must have zero exponent sum in a since it is a consequence of the original relator R. This means that W can be expressed as a reduced word in terms of the generators {cj : j E Z}.

The number of vertices of the polygon is N = 2m+4g. Such a polygon exists on the sphere if 7r(N - 2) < LY,in the euclidean plane if 7r(N - 2) = CY,and in the Bolyai-Lobachevskij plane if 7r(N - 2) > o. 41. 13. Combinatorial Approach. 8. For G we construct a modified Cayley diagram IE*, obtained from the proper Cayley diagram by identifying all faces with the same boundary. We will show that E* is a surface complex. To see this we need the following assertion the proof of which is postponed: I. J.

Define the complexity of H to be the number of vertices in Xa. The complexity of H depends only on the conjugacy class of H and, if w is a cyclically reduced word of F, then the core graph of the subgroup H = ( w ) is just a circuit of length ]w]. The analysis of how complexity changes under application of Whitehead automorphisms can be generalised from the case of words and the Peak Reduction procedure carried through so that analogues of the preceding results all hold. We state one instance. 17.
