One-ended subgroups of graphs of free groups with cyclic edge groups

Henry Wilton

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 665–683
Abstract

Consider a one-ended word-hyperbolic group. If it is the fundamental group of a graph of free groups with cyclic edge groups then either it is the fundamental group of a surface or it contains a finitely generated one-ended subgroup of infinite index. As a corollary, the same holds for limit groups. We also obtain a characterisation of surfaces with boundary among free groups equipped with peripheral structures.
