Abstract

This talk will be an easy introduction to some CAT(0) geometry. Among other things, we'll see why centralizers in groups acting geometrically on CAT(0) spaces split (at least virtually). Time permitting, we'll see why having a geometric action on a CAT(0) space is not a quasi-isometry invariant.
