##### Abstract

Let $G$ and ${G}^{\prime }$ 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 $Out\left(G\right)$ and $Out\left({G}^{\prime }\right)$ are finite. If we only assume $Out\left(G\right)$ is finite, then ${G}^{\prime }$ is quasi-isometric to $G$ if and only if ${G}^{\prime }$ is isomorphic to a subgroup of finite index in $G$. In this case, we give an algorithm to determine whether $G$ and ${G}^{\prime }$ are quasi-isometric by looking at their defining graphs.
