Elementary subgroups of the free group are free factors - a new proof

Submission date: 14 March 2019


In this note we give a new proof of the fact that an elementary subgroup (in the sense of first-order theory) of a non abelian free group 𝔽 must be a free factor. The proof is based on definability of orbits of elements of under automorphisms of 𝔽 fixing a large enough subset of 𝔽.
