dc.description.abstractIn this thesis we prove conjugacy length bounds for several classes of groups. We use geometric and algebraic methods to show that there is a polynomial conjugacy length bound for relatively hyperbolic groups, a linear multiple conjugacy length bound for limit groups, and a polynomial multiple conjugacy length bound for nitely presented residually free groups.en_US
