Definable subsets in a free group
Submission date: 2 November 2011.
We give a description of definable subsets in a free non-abelian group F that follows from our work on the Tarski problems. As a corollary we show that proper non-abelian subgroups of F are not definable (Malcev's problem) and prove Bestvina and Feighn's result that definable subsets in a free group are either negligible or co-negligible.
