Stackings and the $W$-cycles Conjecture
We prove Wise's $W$-cycles conjecture: Consider a compact graph $\Gamma'$ immersing into another graph $\Gamma$. For any immersed cycle $\Lambda:S^1\to \Gamma$, we consider the map $\Lambda'$ from the circular components $\mathbb{S}$ of the pullback to $\Gamma'$. Unless $\Lambda'$ is reducible, the degree of the covering map $\mathbb{S}\to S^1$ is bounded above by minus the Euler characteristic of $\Gamma'$. As a corollary, any finitely generated subgroup of a one-relator group has finitely generated Schur multiplier.

Keywords:free groups, one-relator groups, right-orderability

Free Groups Generated by Two Heisenberg Translations
In this paper, we will discuss the groups generated by two Heisenberg translations of $\mathbf{PU}(2,1)$ and determine when they are free.

Keywords:free group, Heisenberg group, complex triangle group
