Abels's groups revisited

Stefan Witzel

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 3447–3467
Abstract

We generalize a class of groups introduced by Herbert Abels to produce examples of virtually torsion free groups that have Bredon-finiteness length m 1 and classical finiteness length n 1 for all 0 < m n.

The proof illustrates how Bredon-finiteness properties can be verified using geometric methods and a version of Brown’s criterion due to Martin Fluch and the author.

Keywords
