Uniform versus non-uniform group stability

Group stability considers the question of whether "almost"-homomorphisms are "close to" true homomorphisms. Here, "almost" and "close to" are made rigorous using a group metric. More precisely, ...

Is it possible to put Higman group as an amenable by sofic group?

I know Higman group has an amalgamated product decomposition of $BS(1, 2)$. Is it possible to decompose Higman group as some groups we are more familiar with. For example, is there a normal subgroup K ...

Non-residually-finite finitely-presented sofic group with all finitely generated subgroups Hopfian

Is there a finitely presented sofic group which is not residually finite, but all of its finitely generated subgroups are Hopf groups? It seems like the Baumslag Solitar groups $BS(m,n)$ don't work (...

Other than the Higman group, what other candidates do we have for non-sofic groups?

I know that the Higman group is the most widely studied candidate right now, but what are the others? For example, is (are) Thompson's group(s) sofic? And what about the Burger-Mozes groups? I haven't ...

Which conjectures are proved for sofic groups? [closed]

Which conjectures about groups are resolved in case of sofic groups? I know two examples: Kaplansky's direct finiteness conjecture (proved by Gabor Elek). Some versions of Ornstein's isomorphism ...
Let $K$ be a finite field and $G$ be a discrete group. Is it true that for every $a=e+a_1+\ldots+a_n,b=e+b_1+\ldots+b_m\in K[G]$ with $b_i\neq e,a_j\neq e$ the condition $ab=0$ implies $ba=0$? ...
