Groups, graphs and trees: an introduction to the geometry of infinite groups. [John Meier] This book presents a modern, geometric approach to group theory. An accessible and engaging approach to the subject, with many exercises and figures to develop geometric intuition. In geometric group theory, a graph of groups is an object consisting of a collection of groups indexed by the vertices and edges of a graph, together with a family of monomorphisms of the edge groups into the vertex groups. There is a unique group, called the fundamental group, canonically associated to each finite connected graph of admits an orientation .

This is an advanced text and research monograph on groups acting on low-dimensional toplogical spaces, and for the most part the viewpoint is algebraic. Much of the book occurs at the one-dimensional level, where the topology becomes graph theory.

Here the treatment includes several of the standard results on groups acting on trees, as well as many original results on ends of. This book has four chapters.

Chapter one is introductory in nature. The reader is expected to have a good background of algebra and graph theory in order to derive maximum understanding of this research. The second chapter represents groups as graphs. The main feature of this chapter is that it contains 93 examples with diagrams and 18 Size: 1MB.

“The book systematically develops fundamentals of the theory of profinite graphs, with emphasis on exhibiting similarities with the Bass-Serre theory of abstract groups acting on abstract trees. As such, it provides a valuable reference for students and researchers in the field.” (Primož Moravec, Mathematical Reviews, )Brand: Springer International Publishing.

This can be generalised to taking trees instead of segments, and amalgamated products of n groups. The theory behind this beautiful result is called Bass-Serre theory.
