### Groups Acting Acylindrically on Trees

## Abstract

It was shown by Balasubramanya that any acylindrically hyperbolic group (a natural generalisation of a hyperbolic group) must act acylindrically and non-elementarily on some quasi-tree. It is therefore sensible to ask to what extent this is true for trees, i.e. given an acylindrically hyperbolic group, does it admit a non-elementary acylindrical action on some simplicial tree? In this talk I will introduce the concepts of acylindrically hyperbolic and acylindrically arboreal groups and discuss some particularly interesting examples of acylindrically hyperbolic groups which do and do not act acylindrically on trees.
