# Link Conditions for the Haagerup Property

@inproceedings{Ashcroft2021LinkCF, title={Link Conditions for the Haagerup Property}, author={Calum J. Ashcroft}, year={2021} }

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

- Mathematics
- 2020

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)

- MathematicsErgodic Theory and Dynamical Systems
- 2004

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

- MathematicsGeometry & Topology

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

- Mathematics
- 2011

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

- Computer Science
- 2009

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

- MathematicsCanadian Journal of Mathematics
- 1981

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…
