We show that the inclusion map of the generalized Thompson groups F(n i ) is exponentially distorted in the Thompson―Stein groups F(n 1 , ... , n k ) for k > 1. One consequence is that F is exponentially distorted in F(n 1 ,..., n k ) for k > 1 whenever n i = 2 m for some m (whenever no i, m exist such that n i = 2 m , there is no obviously "natural" inclusion map of F into F (n 1 ,..., n k )). This is the first known example in which the natural embedding of one of the Thompson-type groups… Expand

An Irrational-slope Thompson's Group
The purpose of this paper is to study the properties of the irrational-slope Thompson's group $F_\tau$ introduced by Cleary in 1995. We construct presentations, both finite and infinite and weExpand
The automorphism group of Thompson's group F: subgroups and metric properties.
We describe some of the geometric properties of the automorphism group Aut(F) of Thompson's group F. We give realizations of Aut(F) geometrically via periodic tree pair diagrams, which lead toExpand

TLDR
A unique normal form for elements of F(n1, ..., nk) (with respect to the standard infinite generating set developed by Melanie Stein) is introduced which provides a solution to the word problem. Expand
