On the Kurosh theorem and separability properties
Abstract We prove a Kurosh-type subgroup theorem for free products of LERF groups. This theorem permits a better understanding of how finitely generated subgroups are embedded in finite indexExpand
Subgroup Into-Conjugacy Separability Property for Groups
Subgroup conjugacy separability ist eine Eigenschaft einer Gruppe, die logische Fortsetzung der folgenden Reihe von gut bekannten Gruppen- eigenschaften der Gruppen ist: residually finiteness (RF),Expand
Elementarily free groups are subgroup separable
Elementarily free groups are the finitely generated groups with the same elementary theory as free groups. We prove that elementarily free groups are subgroup separable, answering a question of ZlilExpand
A Bass--Serre theoretic proof of a theorem of Burns and Romanovskii
A well known theorem of Burns and Romanovskii states that a free product of subgroup separable groups is itself subgroup separable. We provide a proof using the language of immersions and coveringsExpand
All finitely generated 3-manifold groups are Grothendieck rigid
In this paper, we prove that all finitely generated 3-manifold groups are Grothendieck rigid. More precisely, for any finitely generated 3manifold group G and any finitely generated proper subgroup HExpand
Maximal subgroups and von Neumann subalgebras with the Haagerup property
We initiate a study of maximal subgroups and maximal von Neumann subalgebras which have the Haagerup property. We determine maximal Haagerup subgroups inside $\mathbb{Z}^2 \rtimes SL_2(\mathbb{Z})$Expand
Property (QT) of 3-manifold groups
Introduced by Bestvina-Bromberg-Fujiwara, a finitely generated group is said to have property (QT) if it acts isometrically on a finite product of quasi-trees so that orbital maps are quasi-isometricExpand
On FC-central extensions of groups of intermediate growth
It is shown that FC-central extensions retain sub-exponential volume growth. A large collection of FC-central extensions of the first Grigorchuk group is provided by the constructions in the works ofExpand
Subgroup Separability of Artin Groups
We prove an Artin group is subgroup separable if and only if it can be obtained from the irreducible spherical Artin groups of rank 1 and 2 via a finite sequence of free products and direct productsExpand

In this paper, we give a complete characterization on which finitely generated subgroups of finitely generated $3$-manifold groups are separable. Our characterization generalizes Liu's spiralityExpand


A note on free groups
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],Expand
On finitely generated subgroups of a free product
1. Introduction. In [2], M. Hall, Jr. proved the following theorem: Let 77 be a finitely generated subgroup of a free group Fand suppose ßi, • • • , ßn are in F but no ßi is in 77. Then we mayExpand
Schreier systems in free products
In 1927 Schreier [8] proved the Nielsen-Schreier Theorem that a subgroup H of a free group F is a free group by selecting a left transversal for H in F possessing a certain cancellation property.Expand
