The Wall conjecture and hyperbolic groups Tshishiku, Bena


The Wall conjecture predicts that every finitely presented Poincare duality group G is the fundamental group of some closed aspherical manifold M (and the Borel conjecture predicts that M is unique up to homeomorphism). Recently Bartels-Lueck-Weinberger solved the Wall conjecture for hyperbolic groups whose boundary is an n-sphere (n>4). In this talk I will discuss an extension of their work to hyperbolic groups whose boundary is a Sierpinski space. This is joint work with Jean Lafont.
