Presenting parabolic subgroups

François Dahmani and Vincent Guirardel

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 3203–3222
Abstract

Consider a relatively hyperbolic group G. We prove that if G is finitely presented, so are its parabolic subgroups. Moreover, a presentation of the parabolic subgroups can be found algorithmically from a presentation of G, a solution of its word problem and generating sets of the parabolic subgroups. We also give an algorithm that finds parabolic subgroups in a given recursively enumerable class of groups.
