Title: Stable canonical representatives for geometric small cancelation groups (2)

Rips and Sela constructed canonical representatives in hyperbolic groups and showed how to use them to solve equations over these groups. Our goal in this talk is to give a new construction of canonical representatives in a special class of hyperbolic groups called small cancelation groups and discuss their properties. This is joint work with Yasushi Yamashita (Nara Women's University)
