Haagerup Property for subgroups of ${SL}_2$ and residually free groups

Yves de Cornulier

Full-text: Open access

Abstract

In this note, we prove that all subgroups of $\textnormal{SL}(2,R)$ have the Haagerup Property if $R$ is a commutative reduced ring. This is based on the case when $R$ is a field, recently established by Guentner, Higson, and Weinberger. As an application, residually free groups have the Haagerup Property.
