A construction of hyperbolic Coxeter groups

Damian Osajda[1]

(1) Uniwersytet Wrocławski, Poland

We give a simple construction of Gromov hyperbolic Coxeter groups of arbitrarily large virtual cohomological dimension. Our construction provides new examples of such groups. Using this one can construct, e.g., new groups having some interesting asphericity properties.

Keywords: Gromov hyperbolic groups, Coxeter groups, systolic groups
