Groups acting on quasiconvex spaces and translation numbers

Poleksic, A. (2000) Groups acting on quasiconvex spaces and translation numbers. Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 128 (11). pp. 3177-3183. ISSN 0002-9939



We prove that groups acting geometrically on delta-quasiconvex spaces contain no essential Baumslag-Solitar quotients as subgroups. This implies that they are translation discrete, meaning that the translation numbers of their nontorsion elements are bounded away from zero.
