The residual finiteness of negatively curved polygons of finite groups
- 220 Downloads
A subgroup M⊂G is almost malnormal provided that for each g∈G−M, the intersection M g ∩M is finite. It is proven that the free product of two virtually free groups amalgamating a finitely generated almost malnormal subgroup, is residually finite. A consequence of a generalization of this result is that an acute-angled n-gon of finite groups is residually finite if n≥4. Another consequence is that if G acts properly discontinuously and cocompactly on a 2-dimensional hyperbolic building whose chambers have acute angles and at least 4 sides, then G is residually finite.
