Growth of periodic quotients of hyperbolic groups

Rémi Coulon

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 3111–3133
Abstract

Let G be a non-elementary torsion-free hyperbolic group. We prove that the exponential growth rate of the periodic quotient GGn tends to the one of G as n odd approaches infinity. Moreover, we provide an estimate for the rate at which the convergence is taking place.
