Affine buildings and CAT(0)-spaces (3E002910)

The theory of buildings (developed by Jacques Tits) studies certain (incidence) geometric objects with close ties to Algebra and Geometric Group Theory. In our project we want to study the class of affine buildings and various closely related objects using these different points of view.
