Infinitely Presented, Finitely Generated Group

  1. Sep 4, 2012 #1
    What's an example of a group that has finitely many generators, but cannot be presented using only finitely many relations? Are there any nice groups? They do exist, right?

    I cannot say how nice this group is, but it doesn't look that evil.
