Convex co-compact actions of relatively hyperbolic groups.

  title={Convex co-compact actions of relatively hyperbolic groups.},
  author={Mitul Islam and Andrew M. Zimmer},
  journal={arXiv: Geometric Topology},
In this paper we consider discrete groups in ${\rm PGL}_d(\mathbb{R})$ acting convex co-compactly on a properly convex domain in real projective space. For such groups, we establish necessary and sufficient conditions for the group to be relatively hyperbolic in terms of the geometry of the convex domain. This answers a question of Danciger-Gueritaud-Kassel and is analogous to a result of Hruska-Kleiner for ${\rm CAT}(0)$ spaces.

The structure of relatively hyperbolic groups in convex real projective geometry

In this paper we prove a general structure theorem for relatively hyperbolic groups (with arbitrary peripheral subgroups) acting naive convex co-compactly on properly convex domains in real

Convex co-compact groups with one dimensional boundary faces

In this paper we consider convex co-compact subgroups of the projective linear group. We prove that such a group is relatively hyperbolic with respect to a collection of virtually Abelian subgroups

Convex co-compact representations of 3-manifold groups.

A representation of a finitely generated group into the projective general linear group is called convex co-compact if it has finite kernel and its image acts convex co-compactly on a properly convex

Dynamical properties of convex cocompact actions in projective space.

We give a dynamical characterization of convex cocompact group actions on properly convex domains in projective space in the sense of Danciger-Gueritaud-Kassel: we show that convex cocompactness in

Rank-One Hilbert Geometries

We introduce and study the notion of rank-one Hilbert geometries and open properly convex domains in $\mathbb{P}(\mathbb{R}^{d+1})$. This is in the spirit of rank-one non-positively curved Riemannian

Patterson--Sullivan densities in convex projective geometry

For any rank-one convex projective manifold with a compact convex core, we prove that there exists a unique probability measure of maximal entropy on the set of unit tangent vectors whose geodesic is

The boundary of rank-one divisible convex sets

We prove that for any non-symmetric irreducible divisible convex set, the proximal limit set is the full projective boundary.



A flat torus theorem for convex co‐compact actions of projective linear groups

In this paper, we consider discrete groups in PGLd(R) acting convex co‐compactly on a properly convex domain in real projective space. For such groups, we establish an analogue of the well‐known flat

Convex cocompact actions in real projective geometry

We study a notion of convex cocompactness for (not necessarily irreducible) discrete subgroups of the projective general linear group acting on real projective space, and give various

Convex cocompactness in pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic spaces

Anosov representations of word hyperbolic groups into higher-rank semisimple Lie groups are representations with finite kernel and discrete image that have strong analogies with convex cocompact

Convex projective generalized dehn filling

For $d=4, 5, 6$, we exhibit the first examples of complete finite volume hyperbolic $d$-manifolds $M$ with cusps such that infinitely many $d$-orbifolds $M_{m}$ obtained from $M$ by generalized Dehn

Hadamard spaces with isolated flats

We explore the geometry of nonpositively curved spaces with isolated flats, and its consequences for groups that act properly discontinuously, cocompactly, and isometrically on such spaces. We prove

Projective Anosov representations, convex cocompact actions, and rigidity

In this paper we show that many projective Anosov representations act convex cocompactly on some properly convex domain in real projective space. In particular, if a non-elementary word hyperbolic
