Tameness and the Geodesic Cores of Subgroups.Geometry/Topology
|Speaker:||Rita Gitik, Michigan|

We give a new definition of a tame subgroup, discuss various examples, and give a very short proof of the fact that quasiconvex subgroups of negatively curved groups are tame. The proof is related to the Dehn algorithm.
