Abstract In this paper we look at presentations of subgroups of finitely presented groups with infinite cyclic quotients. We prove that if H is a finitely generated normal subgroup of a finitely presented group G with G/H cyclic, then H has ascending finite endomorphic presentation. It follows that any finitely presented indicable group without free semigroups has the structure of a semidirect product H ⋊ ℤ, where H has finite ascending endomorphic presentation. 
Presentations and Structural Properties of Self-similar Groups and Groups without Free Sub-semigroups
This dissertation is devoted to the study of self-similar groups and related topics. It consists of three parts. The first part is devoted to the study of examples of finitely generated amenable
A Note on Invariantly Finitely $L$-Presented Groups
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


Endomorphic presentations of branch groups
Amenable groups that act on the line
Let Gamma be a finitely generated, amenable group. Using an idea of E Ghys, we prove that if Gamma has a nontrivial, orientation-preserving action on the real line, then Gamma has an infinite, cyclic

The main theorem of this paper states that a finitely generated group can be embedded in a finitely presented group if and only if it has a recursively enumerable set of defining relations. It
Groups with no free subsemigroups
We look at groups which have no (nonabelian) free subsemigroups. It is known that a finitely generated solvable group with no free subsemigroup is nilpotent-by-finite. Conversely nilpotent-by-finite
A Reidemeister-Schreier theorem for finitely $L$-presented groups
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

On locally indicable groups
A group is said to be locally indicable if each of its non-trivial finitely generated subgroups has the infinite cyclic group as a homomorphic image. Such groups were studied by Higman [-9] in
On a Torsion-Free Weakly Branch Group Defined by a Three State Automaton
We study a torsion free weakly branch group G without free subgroups defined by a three state automaton which appears in different problems related to amenability, Galois groups and monodromy. Here...
A property of groups of non-exponential growth
We prove that in a finitely generated nonexponential group a normal subgroup with a solvable quotient is finitely generated. This extends a theorem of Milnor which has the same conclusion if the
Branch groups
The class of branch groups is defined (both in the abstract and in the profinite category). The relationship of this class with the class of extremal groups is established. Properties of the branch
