Groups whose word problems are not semilinear

Preprint, Article English OPEN
Gilman, Robert H.; Kropholler, Robert P; Schleimer, Saul;

Suppose that G is a finitely generated group and WP (G) is the formal language of words defining the identity in G. We prove that if G is a virtually nilpotent group that is not virtually abelian, the fundamental group of a finite volume hyperbolic three-manifold, or a ... View more
