Monoid presentations of groups by finite special string-rewriting systems
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Volume 38 (2004) no. 3, pp. 245-256.

We show that the class of groups which have monoid presentations by means of finite special [λ]-confluent string-rewriting systems strictly contains the class of plain groups (the groups which are free products of a finitely generated free group and finitely many finite groups), and that any group which has an infinite cyclic central subgroup can be presented by such a string-rewriting system if and only if it is the direct product of an infinite cyclic group and a finite cyclic group.
