Decidability and independence of conjugacy problems in finitely presented monoids: Theoretical Computer Science

In a group, two elements a and b are conjugate if there is some g with gag-1 = b. Conjugacy is an equivalence relation and can be used to partition a group into equivalence classes whose elements are... more
