On realizing HNN groups in 3-manifolds

C. D. Feustel and Robert John Gregorac

Vol. 46 (1973), No. 2, 381–387
Abstract

In this paper we suppose that the fundamental group of a 3-manifold M has a presentation as an HNN group. We then show that under suitable conditions we can realize this presentation by embedding a closed, connected imcompressible surface in M.
