The Equalizer Conjecture for the free group of rank two
MetadataShow full item record
The equalizer of a set of homomorphisms S : F(a,b) → F(Δ) has rank at most two if S contains an injective map and is not finitely generated otherwise. This proves a strong form of Stallings’ Equalizer Conjecture for the free group of rank two. Results are also obtained for pairs of homomorphisms g,h : F(Σ) → F(Δ) when the images are inert in, or retracts of, F(Δ).
