$\mathrm{CAT}(0)$ spaces with boundary the join of two Cantor sets

Khek Lun Harold Chao

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 14 (2014) 1107–1122
Abstract

We will show that if a proper complete CAT(0) space X has a visual boundary homeomorphic to the join of two Cantor sets, and X admits a geometric group action by a group containing a subgroup isomorphic to 2, then its Tits boundary is the spherical join of two uncountable discrete sets. If X is geodesically complete, then X is a product, and the group has a finite index subgroup isomorphic to a lattice in the product of two isometry groups of bounded valence bushy trees.
