If you have a question about this talk, please contact Nicolas DuprÃ©. The Tits alternative states that any finitely generated linear group either contains a soluble finite index subgroup or contains a free subgroup of rank 2. This helps to motivate the following: given any 2-generated subgroup of SL(2,R), can one determine if this subgroup is free (of rank 2)? This remains an open question, however a 2014 paper of Eick, Kirschmer and Leedham-Green presents an algorithm (which follows from the work of others) to check whether such a group is discrete and free. In this talk I will discuss the details of this algorithm and outline some possibilities for future work in this area.
