The Tits alternative for non-spherical Pride groups

Kopteva, Natalia, Williams, Gerald (2008) The Tits alternative for non-spherical Pride groups. Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 40 (Part 1). 57 -64. ISSN 0024-6093. (doi:10.1112/blms/bdm092) (KAR id:14707)


Pride groups, or 'groups given by presentations in which each defining relator involves at most two types of generators', include Coxeter groups, Artin groups, triangles of groups, and Vinberg's groups defined by periodic paired relations. We show that every non-spherical Pride group that is not a triangle of groups satisfies the Tits alternative.
