Combing Euclidean buildings

Gennady A Noskov

Geometry & Topology 4 (2000) 85–116

arXiv: math.GR/0001186

Abstract

For an arbitrary Euclidean building we define a certain combing, which satisfies the “fellow traveller property” and admits a recursive definition. Using this combing we prove that any group acting freely, cocompactly and by order preserving automorphisms on a Euclidean building of one of the types An,Bn,Cn admits a biautomatic structure.
