A generalized axis theorem for cube complexes

Daniel J Woodhouse

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 17 (2017) 2737–2751
Abstract

We consider a finitely generated virtually abelian group G acting properly and without inversions on a CAT(0) cube complex X. We prove that G stabilizes a finite-dimensional CAT(0) subcomplex Y X that is isometrically embedded in the combinatorial metric. Moreover, we show that Y is a product of finitely many quasilines. The result represents a higher-dimensional generalization of Haglund’s axis theorem.
