Coarse median spaces were introduced by Bowditch recently as a unified way to study Gromoví»s hyperbolic spaces, mapping class groups and CAT(0) groups. They have several nice properties, including Property RD and Property A. In my talk, I will introduce the basic conceptions and our recent work on this class of spaces. If time permits, I will also discuss the asymptotic dimension growth of coarse median spaces with finite rank. This is a joint work with G. Arzhantseva, G. Niblo and N. Wright.
