NPCW01 - Non-positive curvature in action

Admitting a “nice” action on a hyperbolic space has strong algebraic and geometric consequences for a group. For this talk we will focus on replacing “nice” by “non-trivial acylindrical”. The goal of the talk is to open and discuss a number of interesting and important recognition problems for non-trivial acylindrical actions of groups on hyperbolic spaces and to discuss the relation between these problems and the existence of coarse negative curvature in the group. This is a summary of current progress on many projects with a variety of co-authors.
