Abstract

We prove a version of the countable union theorem for asymptotic dimension and we apply it to groups acting on asymptotically finite dimensional metric spaces. As a consequence we obtain the following finite dimensionality theorems.

A) An amalgamated product of asymptotically finite dimensional groups has finite asymptotic dimension: asdimA CB < .

B) Suppose that G is an HNN extension of a group G with asdimG < . Then asdimG < .

C) Suppose that Γ is Davis’ group constructed from a group π with asdimπ < . Then asdimΓ < .
