New Methods for Finding Non-Left-Orderable and Unique Product Groups
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we present techniques for proving a group to be non-left-orderable or a unique product group. These methods involve the existence of a mapping from the group to R which obeys a left-multiplication criterion. By determining the existence or non-existence of such a mapping, the desired information about the group can be concluded. As examples, we apply this technique to groups of transformations in hyperbolic 2- and 3- space, and Fibonacci groups.
