# Galois theory, graphs and free groups

@article{Everitt2006GaloisTG, title={Galois theory, graphs and free groups}, author={Brent Everitt}, journal={arXiv: Group Theory}, year={2006} }

A self-contained exposition is given of the topological and Galois-theoretic properties of the category of combinatorial 1-complexes, or graphs, very much in the spirit of Stallings. A number of classical, as well as some new results about free groups are derived.

Intersections of finitely generated free groups

A result of Howson is that two finitely generated subgroups U and V of a free group have finitely generated intersection. Hanna Neumann showed further that, if m, n and N are the ranks of U, V and U…

The object of this note is to point out a theorem of M. Hall, Jr. (Theorem 1), proved, but formulated in a weaker form, as Theorem 5.1 of [2]. We then show that results of Karrass and Solitar [5],…
