For every finitely generated recursively presented group \(\mathcal G\) we construct a finitely presented group \(\mathcal H\) containing \(\mathcal G\) such that \(\mathcal G\) is (Frattini) embedded into \(\mathcal H\) and the group \(\mathcal H\) has solvable conjugacy problem if and only if \(\mathcal G\) has solvable conjugacy problem. Moreover \(\mathcal G\) and \(\mathcal H\) have the same r.e. Turing degrees of the conjugacy problem. This solves a problem by D. Collins.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebra and algebraic geometry.
