Uncountably many groups of type FP

We construct uncountably many discrete groups of type FP; in particular we construct groups of type FP that do not embed in any finitely presented group. We compute the ordinary, ℓ2 , and compactly

Finitely generated groups acting uniformly properly on hyperbolic space

We construct an uncountable sequence of groups acting uniformly properly on hyperbolic spaces. We show that only countably many of these groups can be virtually torsion-free. This gives new examples

Virtually special non-finitely presented groups via linear characters

We present a new method for showing that groups are virtually special. This is done by considering finite quotients and linear characters. We use this to show that an infinite family of groups,

Some groups of type VF

Abstract.A group is of type VF if it has a finite-index subgroup which has a finite classifying space. We construct groups of type VF in which the centralizers of some elements of finite order are

Branched Coverings of Cubical Complexes and Subgroups of Hyperbolic Groups

By considering branched coverings of piecewise Euclidean cubical complexes, the paper provides an example of a torsion free hyperbolic group containing a finitely presented subgroup which is not

A family of groups with nice word problems

This paper is an outgrowth of my old battle with the open sentence problem for the theory of finite groups. The unsolvability of the word problem for groups (cf. [1] and [4]) entails the

Special Cube Complexes

Abstract.We introduce and examine a special class of cube complexes. We show that special cube-complexes virtually admit local isometries to the standard 2-complexes of naturally associated

Morse theory and finiteness properties of groups

Abstract. We examine the finiteness properties of certain subgroups of “right angled” Artin groups. In particular, we find an example of a group that is of type FP(Z) but is not finitely presented.
