Finiteness of homological filling functions

Joshua W. Fleming and Eduardo Martínez-Pedroza

Vol. 11 (2018), No. 4, 569–583

Let G be a group. For any G-module M and any integer d > 0, we define a function FVMd+1 : {} generalizing the notion of (d+1)-dimensional filling function of a group. We prove that this function takes only finite values if M is of type FPd+1 and d > 0, and remark that the asymptotic growth class of this function is an invariant of M. In the particular case that G is a group of type FPd+1, our main result implies that its (d+1)-dimensional homological filling function takes only finite values.
