Abstract
The question which motivates the article is the following: given a group acting on a CAT(0) cube complex, how can we prove that it is acylindrically hyperbolic? Keeping this goal in mind, we show a weak acylindricity of the action on the contact graph associated to a CAT(0) cube complex, and we prove a characterisation of WPD contracting isometries of CAT(0) cube complexes. As a first consequence, we find alternative arguments to show several criteria which were proved by Indira Chatterji and Alexandre Martin. Next, we show that if a group acts essentially and acylindrically on the hyperplanes (i.e., the intersection of the stabilisers of two hyperplanes which are sufficiently far away from each other has its cardinality uniformly bounded) on a finitedimensional CAT(0) cube complex, then it contains a finiteindex subgroup which is either acylindrically hyperbolic or cyclic. Finally, we prove a statement about codimensionone subgroups, which implies that, if a group contains a finitely generated codimensionone subgroup which is malnormal and which satisfies the bounded packing property, then this group must contain a finiteindex subgroup which is either acylindrically hyperbolic or cyclic.
