Algebraic and geometric finiteness conditions for virtually torsion-free groups

Brita Nucinkis, ETH Zürich

We say a group G is of type F , if it admits a finite Eilenberg-MacLane space K(G, 1). A group is said to be of type V F if it has a subgroup of finite index which is of type F . We shall look at the behaviour of conjugacy classes and centralizers of finite subgroups of V F -groups.
