Arrangements of hypersurfaces and Bestvina–Brady groups

We show that quasi-projective Bestvina-Brady groups are fundamental groups of complements to hyperplane arrangements. Furthermore we relate other normal subgroups of right-angled Artin groups to

Dehn functions and finiteness properties of subgroups of perturbed right-angled Artin groups

We introduce the class of perturbed right-angled Artin groups. These are constructed by gluing Bieri double groups into standard right-angled Artin groups. As a first application of this construction

Normal subgroups of SimpHAtic groups

A group is SimpHAtic if it acts geometrically on a simply connected simplicially hereditarily aspherical (SimpHAtic) complex. We show that finitely presented normal subgroups of the SimpHAtic groups

On the topology of symplectic Calabi–Yau 4‐manifolds

Let M be a 4‐manifold with residually finite fundamental group G having b1(G) > 0. Assume that M carries a symplectic structure with trivial canonical class K=0∈H2(M). Using a theorem of Bauer and

Normal Subgroups of Profinite Groups of Finite Cohomological Dimension

A profinite group G of finite cohomological dimension with (topologically) finitely generated closed normal subgroup N is studied. If G is pro‐p and N is either free as a pro‐p group or a Poincaré

Non-Positive Curvature and Group Theory

We have already seen that one can say a good deal about the structure of groups which act properly by isometries on CAT(0) spaces, particularly if the action is cocompact. One of the main goals of

A homological finiteness criterion

Cobordism for Poincaré duality groups

1. Relative homology for pairs. Homology and cohomology for a pair of groups G D S (cf. [6] ) can be extended to pairs (G, S) consisting of a group G and a family of subgroups S = {St}, as follows:

An Improved Subgroup Theorem for HNN Groups with Some Applications

In [4], a subgroup theorem for HNN groups was established. The theorem was proved by embedding the given HNN group in a free product with amalgamated subgroup and then applying the subgroup theorem

ON THE HOMOLOGICAL DIMENSION OF GROUP ALGEBRAS OF SOLVABLE GROUPS

In the paper we calculate the weak dimension of the group algebra of a solvable group and the projective dimension of the group algebra of a countable nilpotent group. Exact bounds are obtained for
