Groups of type $FP$ via graphical small cancellation

- Mathematics

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

- MathematicsInventiones mathematicae

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…

. 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…

Previously one of us introduced a family of groups GL (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 GL (S)…

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.

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…

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…
