for all x ∈ X . Quasi-isometries occur naturally in the study of the geometry of discrete groups since the length spaces on which a given finitely generated group acts cocompactly and properly discontinuously by isometries are quasi-isometric to one another [Gro]. Quasi-isometries also play a crucial role in Mostow’s proof of his rigidity theorem: the(More)
We study discrete group actions on coarse Poincare duality spaces, e.g. acyclic simplicial complexes which admit free cocompact group actions by Poincare duality groups. When G is an (n − 1) dimensional duality group and X is a coarse Poincare duality space of formal dimension n, then a free simplicial action G y X determines a collection of “peripheral”(More)
