Super-exponential distortion of subgroups of $\mathrm{CAT}(-1)$ groups

Josh Barnard, Noel Brady and Pallavi Dani

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 7 (2007) 301–308

arXiv: math.GR/0701930

Abstract

We construct 2–dimensional CAT(1) groups which contain free subgroups with arbitrary iterated exponential distortion, and with distortion higher than any iterated exponential.

Keywords
distortion, CAT($-1$), hyperbolic
