Large-type Artin groups are systolic. (English) Zbl 07194965
Summary: We prove that Artin groups from a class containing all large-type Artin groups are systolic. This provides a concise yet precise description of their geometry. Immediate consequences are new results concerning large-type Artin groups: biautomaticity; existence of \(E Z\)-boundaries; the Novikov conjecture; descriptions of finitely presented subgroups, of virtually solvable subgroups, and of centralizers of elements; the Burghelea conjecture; existence of low-dimensional models for classifying spaces for some families of subgroups.
