One variable equations in torsion-free hyperbolic groups

Submission date: 3 March 2009.


Let Γ be a torsion-free hyperbolic group. We show that the set of solutions of any system of equations with one variable in Γ is a finite union of points and cosets of centralizers if and only if any two-generator subgroup of Γ is free.
