. We construct an example of a torsion free freely indecomposable finitely presented non-quasiconvex subgroup H of a word hyperbolic group G such that the limit set of H is not the limit set of a quasiconvex subgroup of G. In particular, this gives a counterexample to the conjecture of G. Swarup that a finitely presented one-ended subgroup of a word hyperbolic group is quasiconvex if and only if it has finite index in its virtual normalizer. Contents 1. Introduction 184 2.

Introduction A subgroup H of a word hyperbolic group G is quasiconvex (or rational) in G if for any finite generating set A of G there is ffl ? 0 such that every geodesic in the Cayley graph \Gamma(G; A) of G with both endpoints in H is contained in ffl-neighborhood of H . The notion of a quasiconvex subgroup corresponds, roughly speaking, to that of geometric finiteness in the theory of classical hyperbolic groups (see [Swa], [KS], [Pi]). Quas..
