# Approximating the Schur multiplier of certain infinitely presented groups via nilpotent quotients

@article{Hartung2010ApproximatingTS, title={Approximating the Schur multiplier of certain infinitely presented groups via nilpotent quotients}, author={Ren{\'e} Hartung}, journal={Lms Journal of Computation and Mathematics}, year={2010}, volume={13}, pages={260-271} }

We describe an algorithm for computing successive quotients of the Schur multiplier M ( G ) of a group G given by an invariant finite L -presentation. As applications, we investigate the Schur multipliers of various self-similar groups, including the Grigorchuk super-group, the generalized Fabrykowski–Gupta groups, the Basilica group and the Brunner–Sidki–Vieira group.

We prove a variant of the well-known Reidemeister-Schreier theorem for finitely $L$-presented groups. More precisely, we prove that each finite index subgroup of a finitely $L$-presented group is…

We describe a new type of presentation that, when consistent, describes a polycyclic group. This presentation is obtained by refining a series of normal subgroups with abelian sections.…

Self-similar groups provide a rich source of groups with interesting properties; e.g., infinite torsion groups (Burnside groups) and groups with an intermediate word growth. Various self-similar…

In the first part of this note, we introduce Tietze transformations for $L$-presentations. These transformations enable us to generalize Tietze's theorem for finitely presented groups to invariantly…

A nilpotent quotient algorithm is described for a certain class of infinite presentations: the so-called finite L-presentations and conjectural descriptions of the lower central series structure of various interesting groups including the Grigorchuk supergroup, the Brunner–Sidki–Vieira group, the Basilica group, and certain generalizations of the Fabrykowski–Gupta group are obtained.
