Growth and order of automorphisms of free groups and free Burnside groups

Rémi Coulon and Arnaud Hilion

Geometry & Topology 21 (2017) 1969–2014
Abstract

We prove that an outer automorphism of the free group is exponentially growing if and only if it induces an outer automorphism of infinite order of free Burnside groups with sufficiently large odd exponent.

Keywords
automorphism groups, free groups, Burnside groups, growth of automorphisms, train-track theory
