EG for systolic groupsPiotr Przytycki (1) McGill University, Montreal, Canada
We prove that if a group G is systolic, i.e., if it acts properly and cocompactly on a systolic complex X, then an appropriate Rips complex constructed from X is a finite model for EG.
Keywords: Systolic group, simplicial nonpositive curvature, classifying space for the family of finite subgroups
