Link Conditions for the Haagerup Property

  title={Link Conditions for the Haagerup Property},
  author={Calum J. Ashcroft},
We provide a condition on the links of a polygonal complex X that is sufficient to ensure Aut(X) has the Haagerup property, and hence so do any closed subgroups of Aut(X) (in particular, any group acting properly on X). We provide an application of this work by considering the group of automorphisms of simply-connected triangle complexes where the link of every vertex is isomorphic to the graph F090A, as constructed by Świątkowski.

Link conditions for cubulation
We provide a condition on the links of polygonal complexes that is sufficient to ensure groups acting properly discontinuously and cocompactly on such complexes contain a virtually free codimension-1
Trivalent Polygonal Complexes of Nonpositive Curvature and Platonic Symmetry
In this paper we study a natural generalization of Platonic solids: two-dimensional simply connected polygonal complexes with flag transitive group of combinatorial automorphisms. Our results give an
Spaces with measured walls, the Haagerup property and property (T)
We introduce the notion of a space with measured walls, generalizing the concept of a space with walls due to Haglund and Paulin (Simplicité de groupes d'automorphismes d'espaces à courbure négative.
Cubulable Kähler groups
We prove that a K\"ahler group which is cubulable, i.e. which acts properly discontinuously and cocompactly on a CAT(0) cubical complex, has a finite index subgroup isomorphic to a direct product of
Line Patterns in Free Groups
We study line patterns in a free group by considering the topology of the decomposition space, a quotient of the boundary at infinity of the free group related to the line pattern. We show that the
Kazhdan’s Property (T)
Let G be a locally compact (second countable) group and π:G → U(ℋ) a unitary representation of G on the (separable) Hilbert space ℋ.Of course,ℋ may or may not contain non-trivial vectors invariant
La propriété (T) de Kazhdan pour les groupes agissant sur les polyèdres
Soit X un complexe simplicial fini de dimension deux. On donne une condition sur X pour que le groupe fondamental de X ait la propriete (T). Cette condition est satisfaite par les immeubles de Tits
Cubulating small cancellation groups
AbstractWe study the B(6) and B(4)-T(4) small cancellation groups. These classes include the usual C’(1/6) and C’(1/4)-T(4) metric small cancellation groups. We show that every finitely presented
Virtually geometric words and Whitehead's algorithm
It is proved that some words (e.g. bbaaccabc) are not virtually geometric, which proves that which collections of words are "virtually geometric".
Unbounded Negative Definite Functions
Negative definite functions (all definitions are given in § 1 below) on a locally compact, σ-compact group G have been used in several different contexts recently [2, 5, 7, 11]. In this paper we show
