Let Γ be a torsion-free hyperbolic group. We study Γ-limit groups which, unlike the fundamental case in which Γ is free, may not be finitely presentable or geometrically tractable. We define model Γ-limit groups, which always have good geometric properties (in particular, they are always relatively hyperbolic). Given a strict resolution of an arbitrary Γ-limit group L, we canonically construct a strict resolution of a model Γ-limit group, which encodes all homomorphisms L → Γ that factor…

There is an algorithm which constructs a cover of a canonical solution diagram which encodes all homomorphisms from G to Γ as compositions of factorizations through Γ-NTQ groups and canonical automorphisms of the corresponding NTQ-subgroups.
