# Generalized triangle groups, expanders, and a problem of Agol and Wise

@article{Lubotzky2019GeneralizedTG, title={Generalized triangle groups, expanders, and a problem of Agol and Wise}, author={Alexander Lubotzky and Jason Fox Manning and Henry Wilton}, journal={Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici}, year={2019} }

Answering a question asked by Agol and Wise, we show that a desired stronger form of Wise's malnormal special quotient theorem does not hold. The counterexamples are generalizations of triangle groups, built using the Ramanujan graphs constructed by Lubotzky--Phillips--Sarnak.
