Acylindrical group actions on quasi-trees

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 2145–2176
Abstract

A group G is acylindrically hyperbolic if it admits a non-elementary acylindrical action on a hyperbolic space. We prove that every acylindrically hyperbolic group G has a generating set X such that the corresponding Cayley graph Γ is a (non-elementary) quasi-tree and the action of G on Γ is acylindrical. Our proof utilizes the notions of hyperbolically embedded subgroups and projection complexes. As an application, we obtain some new results about hyperbolically embedded subgroups and quasi-convex subgroups of acylindrically hyperbolic groups.

Keywords
