Boundaries of systolic groups

Damian Osajda and Piotr Przytycki

Geometry & Topology 13 (2009) 2807–2880
Abstract

For all systolic groups we construct boundaries which are EZ–structures. This implies the Novikov conjecture for torsion-free systolic groups. The boundary is constructed via a system of distinguished geodesics in a systolic complex, which we prove to have coarsely similar properties to geodesics in CAT(0) spaces.

Keywords
