Let G be a complete Kac-Moody group of rank n \geq 2 over the finite field of order q, with Weyl group W and building \Delta. We first show that if W is right-angled, then for all q \neq 1 mod 4 the group G admits a cocompact lattice \Gamma which acts transitively on the chambers of \Delta. We also obtain a cocompact lattice for q =1 mod 4 in the case that \Delta is Bourdon's building. As a corollary of our constructions, for certain right-angled W and certain q, the lattice \Gamma has a surf...
Let G be a reductive group over the field F=k((t)), where k is an algebraic closure of a finite field, and let W be the (extended) affine Weyl group of G. The associated affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties $X_x(b)$, which are indexed by elements b in G(F) and x in W, were introduced by Rapoport. Basic questions about the varieties $X_x(b)$ which have remained largely open include when they are nonempty, and if nonempty, their dimension. We use techniques inspired by geometric group theory and re...
Bowditch's JSJ tree for splittings over 2-ended subgroups is a quasi-isometry invariant for 1-ended hyperbolic groups which are not cocompact Fuchsian. Our main result gives an explicit, computable "visual" construction of this tree for certain hyperbolic right-angled Coxeter groups. As an application of our construction we identify a large class of such groups for which the JSJ tree, and hence the visual boundary, is a complete quasi-isometry invariant, and thus the quasi-isometry problem is...
We construct cocompact lattices Γ’0< Γ0 in the group G = PGLd(Fq((t))) which are\ud type-preserving and act transitively on the set of vertices of each type in the building Δ associated to G. These lattices are commensurable with the lattices of Cartwright [Steger [CS]. The stabiliser of each vertex in Γ’0 is a Singer cycle and the stabiliser of each vertex in Γ0 is isomorphic to\ud the normaliser of a Singer cycle in PGLd(q). We show that the intersections of Γ’0 and Γ0 with\ud PSLd(Fq((t...
Let K be the field of formal Laurent series over the finite field of order q. We construct cocompact lattices \Gamma'_0 < \Gamma_0 in the group G = PGL_d(K) which are type-preserving and act transitively on the set of vertices of each type in the building associated to G. The stabiliser of each vertex in \Gamma'_0 is a Singer cycle and the stabiliser of each vertex in \Gamma_0 is isomorphic to the normaliser of a Singer cycle in PGL_d(q). We then show that the intersections of \Gamma'_0 and \...
Let W be a 2-dimensional right-angled Coxeter group. We characterise such W with linear and quadratic divergence, and construct right-angled Coxeter groups with divergence polynomial of arbitrary degree. Our proofs use the structure of walls in the Davis complex.
Recent work of Lazarovich provides necessary and sufficient conditions on a graph L for there to exist a unique simply-connected (k, L)-complex. The two conditions are symmetry properties of the graph, namely vertex-star transitivity and edge-star transitivity. In this paper we investigate vertex- and edge-star transitive graphs by studying the structure of the vertex and edge stabilisers of such graphs. We also provide new examples of graphs that are both vertex-star transitive and edge-star...
Recent work of Lazarovich provides necessary and sufficient conditions on a graph L for there to exist a unique simply-connected (k,L)-complex. The two conditions are symmetry properties of the graph, namely star-transitivity and st(edge)-transitivity. In this paper we investigate star-transitive and st(edge)-transitive graphs by studying the structure of the vertex and edge stabilisers of such graphs. We also provide new examples of graphs that are both star-transitive and st(edge)-transitive.
Let (W,S) be a finite rank Coxeter system with W infinite. We prove that the limit weak order on the blocks of infinite reduced words of W is encoded by the topology of the Tits boundary of the Davis complex X of W. We consider many special cases, including W word hyperbolic, and X with isolated flats. We establish that when W is word hyperbolic, the limit weak order is the disjoint union of weak orders of finite Coxeter groups. We also establish, for each boundary point \xi, a natural order-...
