We show that every countable group embeds in a group of type $$FP_2$$FP2. 

Groups of type $FP$ via graphical small cancellation

We construct an uncountable family of groups of type $FP$. In contrast to every previous construction of non-finitely presented groups of type $FP$ we do not use Morse theory on cubical complexes;

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

Constructing groups of type $FP_2$ over fields but not over the integers

We construct examples of groups that are FP2(Q) and FP2(Z/pZ) for all primes p but not of type FP2(Z).

Simple groups separated by finiteness properties

We show that for every positive integer n there exists a simple group that is of type $$\mathrm {F}_{n-1}$$Fn-1 but not of type $$\mathrm {F}_n$$Fn. For $$n\ge 3$$n≥3 these groups are the first known

Profinite rigidity of fibring

. We introduce the classes of TAP groups, in which various types of algebraic fibring are detected by the non-vanishing of twisted Alexander polynomials. We show that finitely presented LERF groups lie

On the virtual and residual properties of a generalization of Bestvina-Brady groups

Previously one of us introduced a family of groups G ML ( S ), parametrized by a finite flag complex L , a regular covering M of L , and a set S of integers. We give conjectural descriptions of when G

The main theorem of this paper states that a finitely generated group can be embedded in a finitely presented group if and only if it has a recursively enumerable set of defining relations. It

Cohomology of Groups

This advanced textbook introduces students to cohomology theory. No knowledge of homological algebra is assumed beyond what is normally taught in a first course in algebraic topology.

Embedding Theorems for Groups

By a partial endomorphism of a group G we mean a homomorphic mapping μ of a subgroup A of G onto a subgroup B of G. If μ is denned on the whole of G then it is called a total endomorphism. We call a

Almost finitely presented soluble groups

1.1 Finitely presented soluble groups have been investigated by several authors. Roughly speaking, their results deal with two aspects: with the subgroup structure of finitely presented soluble

A rink-type roller skate is provided with a plastic sole plate. To mount a toe stop on the skate, a novel bushing is embedded in the sole plate. The bushing has relatively small diameter ends and a

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.
