Volume and homology growth of aspherical manifolds

Roman Sauer

Geometry & Topology 20 (2016) 1035–1059
Abstract

(1) We provide upper bounds on the size of the homology of a closed aspherical Riemannian manifold that only depend on the systole and the volume of balls. (2) We show that linear growth of mod p Betti numbers or exponential growth of torsion homology imply that a closed aspherical manifold is “large”.
