Title: Geometric Group Theory without Geometry
Abstract: Over the last several years, ideas from geometric topology have
led to new developments in combinatorial group theory. We discuss the
extent to which the relevant geometric conditions are equivalent to or
can be approximated by conditions on the logical complexity of
associated sets of words over various alphabets.
