Given a non-negative integer m, a standard m-cube m is a copy of the product [0, 1]m in Rm with the usual Euclidean product metric. By composing this inclusion map with an arbitrary isometric embedding of Rm into Rn (for n m) we can think of m-cubes as lying in high dimensional Euclidean spaces. Let 0 k m be an integer. By a k-dimensional face of the standard mcube m we mean a product J m ⊂ m where J = [0, 1] for k of the factors, and J is either {0} or {1} for each of the remaining (m − k) factors.

Suppose J ⊂ J ⊂ R are closed intervals, inf J = inf J , and J \ J contains only one point r of f (0-cells). Then f −1 (J ) is homotopy equivalent to f −1 (J) with the copies of Lk↓ (v, X) (v a vertex with f (v) = r) coned oﬀ. A similar statement holds when inf J = inf J is replaced by sup J = sup J and Lk↓ (v, X) by L↑ (v). 6. We refer the reader to [4] for the proof of this theorem. 2. 2 Morse function criterion for free-by-cyclic groups The next proposition gives a local way of telling that a 2-complex is aspherical and has free-by-cyclic fundamental group.

4. K is a pair of 2-simplices meeting along an edge. 5. K is the boundary of a square. ) Now, prove that if K is a simplicial complex, then S(K) is also a simplicial complex. Example (Exercises on ﬂag condition). These exercises require the reader to recall (or look up) the deﬁnitions of join, barycentric subdivision and link of a simplex. 1. Prove that the join of two ﬂag complexes is again ﬂag. 2. Prove that the barycentric subdivision of any simplicial complex is ﬂag. 3. Prove that the link (in sense of simplicial complexes) of any simplex in a ﬂag complex is again a ﬂag complex.
