On Geometric Flats in the CAT(0) Realization of Coxeter Groups and Tits Buildings Given a complete CAT(0) space $X$ endowed with a geometric action of a group $\Gamma$, it is known that if
$\Gamma$ contains a free abelian group of rank $n$, then $X$ contains a geometric flat of dimension $n$. We
prove the converse of this statement in the special case where $X$ is a convex subcomplex of the CAT(0)
realization of a Coxeter group $W$, and $\Gamma$ is a subgroup of $W$. In particular a convex cocompact subgroup
of a Coxeter group is Gromov-hyperbolic if and only if it does not contain a free abelian group of rank 2. Our
result also provides an explicit control on geometric flats in the CAT(0) realization of arbitrary Tits
buildings.

Asymptotic $K$-Theory for Groups Acting on $\tA_2$ Buildings Let $\Gamma$ be a torsion free lattice in $G=\PGL(3, \mathbb{F})$ where
$\mathbb{F}$ is a nonarchimedean local field. Then $\Gamma$ acts freely
on the affine Bruhat-Tits building $\mathcal{B}$ of $G$ and there is an
induced action on the boundary $\Omega$ of $\mathcal{B}$. The crossed
product $C^*$-algebra $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)=C(\Omega) \rtimes \Gamma$
depends only on $\Gamma$ and is classified by its $K$-theory. This article
shows how to compute the $K$-theory of $\mathcal{A}(\Gamma)$ and of the
larger class of rank two Cuntz-Krieger algebras.

Ramanujan Type Buildings We will construct a finite union of finite quotients of the affine
building of the group $\GL_3$ over the field of $p$-adic numbers
$\mathbb{Q}_p$. We will view this object as a hypergraph and estimate
the spectrum of its underlying graph.
