One-relator Kähler groups

Indranil Biswas and Mahan Mj

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 2171–2186
Abstract

We prove that a one-relator group G is Kähler if and only if either G is finite cyclic or G is isomorphic to the fundamental group of a compact orbifold Riemann surface of genus g > 0 with at most one cone point of order n:

a1,b1,,ag,bg|( i=1g[a i,bi])n.

Keywords
Kähler group, one-relator group, orbifold
