Boundary convex cocompactness and stability of subgroups of finitely generated groups

29 Jul 2016  ·  Cordes Matthew, Durham Matthew Gentry ·

A Kleinian group $\Gamma < \mathrm{Isom}(\mathbb H^3)$ is called convex cocompact if any orbit of $\Gamma$ in $\mathbb H^3$ is quasiconvex or, equivalently, $\Gamma$ acts cocompactly on the convex hull of its limit set in $\partial \mathbb H^3$. Subgroup stability is a strong quasiconvexity condition in finitely generated groups which is intrinsic to the geometry of the ambient group and generalizes the classical quasiconvexity condition above... Importantly, it coincides with quasiconvexity in hyperbolic groups and convex cocompactness in mapping class groups. Using the Morse boundary, we develop an equivalent characterization of subgroup stability which generalizes the above boundary characterization from Kleinian groups. read more
