Quasi-isometric classification of right-angled Artin groups, I: The finite out case

Geometry & Topology 21 (2017) 3467–3537
Abstract

Let G and G be two right-angled Artin groups. We show they are quasi-isometric if and only if they are isomorphic, under the assumption that the outer automorphism groups Out(G) and Out(G) are finite. If we only assume Out(G) is finite, then G is quasi-isometric to G if and only if G is isomorphic to a subgroup of finite index in G. In this case, we give an algorithm to determine whether G and G are quasi-isometric by looking at their defining graphs.
