Abstract

Slice-type conditions and their relatives have been used in a number of papers of the author and various collaborators to investigate a variety of problems in analysis including Sobolev-type imbedding theorems ([BuKo], [BuOS], [BuSt1], [Bu]), quasiconformal equivalence of domains ([BuSt2], [Bu]), and Gromov hyperbolicity ([BaBu]). Despite their usefulness, these conditions are still somewhat mysterious, but some recent research has helped to shed more light on them ([BaBu], [BuSt3], [BuDiSt]). There are quite a few varieties of slice conditions, partially reflecting the fact that di fferent applications require di erent conditions. In this paper, we defi ne some of these variants, discuss how they diff er from each other, and summarize their applications. Along the way, we encounter quite a few examples, counterexamples, and open questions. We discuss (strong) slice conditions and Gromov hyperbolicity in Section 2, weak slice conditions and their applications in Section 3, and some examples and useful lemmas in Section 4.
