The Bieri-Neumann-Strebel Invariant of the Pure Symmetric Automorphisms of a Right-Angled Artin Group

Adam Piggott (Bucknell)


We compute the BNS-invariant for the pure symmetric automorphism groups of right-angled Artin groups. We use this calculation to show that the pure symmetric automorphism group of a right-angled Artin group is itself not a right-angled Artin group provided that its defining graph contains a separating intersection of links.  This is joint work with Nic Koban (University of Maine, Farmington)
