The Post Correspondence Problem and Equalisers for Certain Free Group and Monoid Morphisms

Authors: Laura Ciobanu and Alan D. Logan

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 168, 47th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2020)


Abstract
A marked free monoid morphism is a morphism for which the image of each generator starts with a different letter, and immersions are the analogous maps in free groups. We show that the (simultaneous) PCP is decidable for immersions of free groups, and provide an algorithm to compute bases for the sets, called equalisers, on which the immersions take the same values. We also answer a question of Stallings about the rank of the equaliser. Analogous results are proven for marked morphisms of free monoids.

Solutions Sets to Systems of Equations in Hyperbolic Groups Are EDT0L in PSPACE (Track B: Automata, Logic, Semantics, and Theory of Programming)

Authors: Laura Ciobanu and Murray Elder

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 132, 46th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2019)


Abstract
We show that the full set of solutions to systems of equations and inequations in a hyperbolic group, with or without torsion, as shortlex geodesic words, is an EDT0L language whose specification can be computed in NSPACE(n^2 log n) for the torsion-free case and NSPACE(n^4 log n) for the torsion case. Our work combines deep geometric results by Rips, Sela, Dahmani and Guirardel on decidability of existential theories of hyperbolic groups, work of computer scientists including Plandowski, Jeż, Diekert and others on PSPACE algorithms to solve equations in free monoids and groups using compression, and an intricate language-theoretic analysis. The present work gives an essentially optimal formal language description for all solutions in all hyperbolic groups, and an explicit and surprising low space complexity to compute them.
