Some examples of separable convex-cocompact subgroups

  title={Some examples of separable convex-cocompact subgroups},
  author={Mark F. Hagen and Alessandro Sisto},
. Reid asked whether all convex-cocompact subgroups of mapping class groups are separable. Using a construction of Manning-Mj-Sageev, we give examples of separable convex- cocompact subgroups that are free of arbitrary finite rank, while prior examples seem to all be virtually cyclic.

Separable subgroups of mapping class groups

Intersection properties of stable subgroups and bounded cohomology

We show that a finite collection of stable subgroups of a finitely generated group has finite height, finite width and bounded packing. We then use knowledge about intersections of conjugates to

The virtual Haken conjecture

We prove that cubulated hyperbolic groups are virtually special. The proof relies on results of Haglund and Wise which also imply that they are linear groups, and quasi-convex subgroups are

Cubulating hyperbolic free-by-cyclic groups: The irreducible case

Let $V$ be a finite graph and let $\phi:V\rightarrow V$ be an irreducible train track map whose mapping torus has word-hyperbolic fundamental group $G$. Then $G$ acts freely and cocompactly on a

Hereditary conjugacy separability of right angled Artin groups and its applications

We prove that finite index subgroups of right angled Artin groups are conjugacy separable. We then apply this result to establish various properties of other classes of groups. In particular, we show

A note on acylindrical hyperbolicity of Mapping Class Groups

The aim of this note is to give the simplest possible proof that Mapping Class Groups of closed hyperbolic surfaces are acylindrically hyperbolic, and more specifically that their curve graphs are

The Structure of Groups with a Quasiconvex Hierarchy

Let $G$ be a word-hyperbolic group with a quasiconvex hierarchy. We show that $G$ has a finite index subgroup $G'$ that embeds as a quasiconvex subgroup of a right-angled Artin group. It follows

Convex cocompact subgroups of mapping class groups

We develop a theory of convex cocompact subgroups of the mapping class group MCG of a closed, oriented surface S of genus at least 2, in terms of the action on Teichmuller space. Given a subgroup G

Acylindrically hyperbolic groups and their quasi-isometrically embedded subgroups

. We abstract the notion of an A/QI triple from a number of examples in geometric group theory. Such a triple ( G,X,H ) consists of a group G acting on a Gromov hyperbolic space X , acylindrically

Random subgroups of acylindrically hyperbolic groups and hyperbolic embeddings

Let G be an acylindrically hyperbolic group. We consider a random subgroup H in G, generated by a finite collection of independent random walks. We show that, with asymptotic probability one, such a
