L_delta groups are almost convex and have a sub-cubic Dehn function

Murray Elder

Abstract. We prove that if the Cayley graph of a finitely generated group enjoys the property L_delta then the group is almost convex and has a sub-cubic isoperimetric function.

Keywords. Almost convex, isoperimetric function, property L_delta
