Coarse differentiation and quasi-isometries of a class of solvable Lie groups II

Irine Peng

Geometry & Topology 15 (2011) 1927–1981
Abstract

In this paper, we continue with the results of the preceeding paper and compute the group of quasi-isometries for a subclass of split solvable unimodular Lie groups. Consequently, we show that any finitely generated group quasi-isometric to a member of the subclass has to be polycyclic, and is virtually a lattice in an abelian-by-abelian solvable Lie group. We also give an example of a unimodular solvable Lie group that is not quasi-isometric to any finitely generated group, as well deduce some quasi-isometric rigidity results.
