Abstract

We will discuss some recent results with Martin Bridson about 
Sidki's construction X(G). In particular, if G is a finitely presented
group then X(G) is a finitely presented group. We will discuss as well the
result that if G has polynomial isoperimetric function and the maximal
metabelian quotient of G is virtually nilpotent then X(G) has polynomial
isoperimetric function. Part of the arguments we will use have homological
nature.
