Very small group actions on R-trees and dehn twist automorphisms
LENGTH functions on a group G which come from actions on R-trees [20,29,10,3,37] and spaces of such length functions have been of central importance in combinatorial group theory in recent years. WeExpand

An Empirical Test of a Model of Resistance to Persuasion.
This investigation synthesized research from several related areas to produce a model of resistance to persuasion based upon variables not considered by earlier congruity and inoculation models.Expand

On the dynamics and the fixed subgroup of a free group automorphism
On considere des automorphismes φ:F n →F n , ou F n =F(a 1 ,…,a n ) est le groupe libre de base a 1 ,a 2 ,…,a n (n≥2). On compose un champ vectoriel sur un graphe D(φ). On introduit des aretesExpand

Regular neighborhoods of polyhedra in manifolds have been discussed in many papers, most notably, in the present context, in [W], [H-Z], [H] and [S]. We study regular neighborhoods of X mod Y in ZExpand

ℝ-Tree Actions are Not Determined by the Translation Lengths of Finitely Many Elements
In their basic paper [C-M] Culler and Morgan emphasize the analogy between conjugacy classes of representations of a group G in SO ℝ + (2,1) = PSL(2,ℝ), and translation length functions on G whichExpand

The surjectivity problem for one-generator, one-relator extensions of torsion-free groups
We prove that the natural map G! b G ,w here Gis a torsion-free group and b G is obtained by adding a new generator t and a new relator w, is surjective only if w is conjugate to gt or gt 1 where g2Expand
