Finiteness of outer automorphism groups of random right-angled {A}rtin groups

Matthew B Day

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 1553–1583
Abstract

We consider the outer automorphism group Out(AΓ) of the right-angled Artin group AΓ of a random graph Γ on n vertices in the Erdős–Rényi model. We show that the functions n1(log(n) + log(log(n))) and 1 n1(log(n) + log(log(n))) bound the range of edge probability functions for which Out(AΓ) is finite: if the probability of an edge in Γ is strictly between these functions as n grows, then asymptotically Out(AΓ) is almost surely finite, and if the edge probability is strictly outside of both of these functions, then asymptotically Out(AΓ) is almost surely infinite. This sharpens a result of Ruth Charney and Michael Farber.
