Uniform embeddability and exactness of free products Academic Article uri icon


  • Let A and B be countable discrete groups and let = A * B be their free product. We show that if both A and B are uniformly embeddable in a Hilbert space then so is . We give two different proofs: the first directly constructs a uniform embedding of from uniform embeddings of A and B; the second works without change to show that if both A and B are exact then so is . 2003 Elsevier Inc.
