Conformal dimension and canonical splittings of hyperbolic groups Can one characterize hyperbolic groups whose conformal dimension equals one ? For the definition of conformal dimension, see Haissinsky’s talk. 1. The Kleinian dimension For Kleinian groups, an other dimensionlike invariant arises, … Continue reading
