Abstract

Prishchepov [16] proved that all equations of length at most six over torsion-free groups are solvable. A different proof was given by Ivanov and Klyachko in [12]. This supports the conjecture stated by Levin [15] that any equation over a torsion-free group is solvable. Here it is shown that all equations of length seven over torsion-free groups are solvable.
