Title:  Malnormal Special Quotient Theorem

Abstract:   A crucial tool that emerged in the proof that groups with a quasiconvex hierarchy are virtually special, is the â��malnormal special quotient theoremâ��. It is a â��hyperbolic Dehn filling theoremâ�� functioning within the category of virtually special hyperbolic groups.  After discussing the wallspaces that arise from certain cubical presentations, we will sketch a proof of the malnormal special quotient theorem.
