Abstract: 

Abstract: This talk is a follow-up to the talk I gave in January. In the earlier talk, I presented two theorems which extended results of a 2014 paper regarding cyclically presented groups with a length 3positive word w to the length 4 case. However, the theorems only held when w was not decomposable as there were known counterexamples otherwise. In this talk, I will present new versions of the theoremswhich apply when w is any positive, length 4 word.
