Abstract

I will introduce the notion of Kurosh rank for subgroups of 
free products. This rank satisfies the Howson property, i.e. the 
intersection of two subgroups of finite Kurosh rank has finite Kurosh rank.
I will present a version of the Strengthened Hanna Neumann inequality in 
the case of free products of right-orderable groups. Joint work with  A. 
Martino and I. Schwabrow.
