We inspect the normal subgroup structure of the braided Thompson groups Vbr and Fbr. We prove that every proper normal subgroup of Vbr lies in the kernel of the natural quotient Vbr \onto V, and we exhibit some families of interesting such normal subgroups. For Fbr, we prove that for any normal subgroup N of Fbr, either N is contained in the kernel of Fbr \onto F, or else N contains [Fbr,Fbr]. We also compute the Bieri-Neumann-Strebel invariant Sigma^1(Fbr), which is a useful tool for…

Thompson-like groups, Reidemeister numbers, and fixed points

. We investigate fixed-point properties of automorphisms of groups similar to R. Thompson’s group F . Revisiting work of Gon¸calves–Kochloukova, we deduce a cohomological criterion to detect infinite

Braided Thompson groups with and without quasimorphisms

We study quasimorphisms and bounded cohomology of a variety of braided ver-sions of Thompson groups. Our first main result is that the Brin–Dehornoy braided Thompson group bV has an

On the Bieri–Neumann–Strebel–Renz Σ1-invariant of even Artin groups

We calculate the Bieri-Neumann-Strebel-Renz invariant $\Sigma^1(G)$ for even Artin groups $G$ with underlying graph $\Gamma$ such that if there is a closed reduced path in $\Gamma$ with all labels

Divergence properties of the generalised Thompson groups and the braided-Thompson groups

. Golan and Sapir proved that Thompson’s groups F , T and V have linear divergence. In the current paper, we focus on the divergence property of several generalisations of the Thompson groups. We

The Bieri–Neumann–Strebel invariants via Newton polytopes

We study the Newton polytopes of determinants of square matrices defined over rings of twisted Laurent polynomials. We prove that such Newton polytopes are single polytopes (rather than formal

Quasi-automorphisms of the infinite rooted 2-edge-coloured binary tree

We study the group $QV$, the self-maps of the infinite $2$-edge coloured binary tree which preserve the edge and colour relations at cofinitely many locations. We introduce related groups $QF$, $QT$,

Von Neumann algebras of Thompson-like groups from cloning systems

We prove a variety of results about the group von Neumann algebras associated to Thompson-like groups arising from so called $d$-ary cloning systems. Cloning systems are a framework developed by



Pure braid subgroups of braided Thompson's groups

We describe some properties of braided generalizations of Thompson's groups, introduced by Brin and Dehornoy. We give slightly different characterizations of the braided Thompson's groups $BV$ and

The braided Thompson's groups are of type F∞

Abstract We prove that the braided Thompson’s groups Vbr{V_{\mathrm{br}}} and Fbr{F_{\mathrm{br}}} are of type F∞{\rm F}_{\infty}, confirming a conjecture by John Meier. The proof involves showing

Valuations on free resolutions and higher geometric invariants of groups

Anti-trees and right-angled Artin subgroups of braid groups

We prove that an arbitrary right-angled Artin group G admits a quasi-isometric group embedding into a right-angled Artin group defined by the opposite graph of a tree, and, consequently, into a pure

We construct a braided version BV of Thompson’s group V that surjects onto V . The group V is the third of three well known groups F , T and V created by Thompson in the 1960s that have been heavily

Let PLo.I/ represent the group of orientation-preserving piecewise-linear homeo- morphisms of the unit interval which admit finitely many breaks in slope, under the operation of composition. We find

Some Remarks on the Braided Thompson Group BV

Matthew Brin and Patrick Dehornoy independently discovered a braided version BV of Thompson's group V. In this paper, we discuss some properties of BV that might make the group interesting for group

The Sigma Invariants of Thompson's Group F

Thompson's group F is the group of all increasing dyadic piecewise linear homeomorphisms of the closed unit interval. We compute Sigma^m(F) and Sigma^m(F;Z), the homotopical and homological
