Title:         Malnormality is Decidable in Fully Residually Free Groups
Date:        3:30PM, Wednesday, February 18, 2004
Place:       Room 920, Burnside Hall, McGill University
 Abstract: "A subgroup H of a group G is called

malnormal if it has trivial intersection with gHg^-1

for any element g of G. We present an algorithm which

decides if a finitely generated subgroup of a finitely

generated fully residually free group G is malnormal

in G."
