On asymptotic dimension of amalgamated products and right-angled Coxeter groups

Alexander Dranishnikov

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 8 (2008) 1281–1293
Abstract

We prove that the asymptotic dimension of A and B amalgamated over C is bounded above by the maximum of the asymptotic dimensions of A, B and C + 1. Then we apply this inequality to show that the asymptotic dimension of any right-angled Coxeter group does not exceed the dimension of its Davis complex.
