Weighted cogrowth formula for free groups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate the relationship between geometric, analytic and probabilistic indices for quotients of the Cayley graph of the free group Cay(Fn) by an arbitrary subgroup G of Fn. Our main result, which generalizes Grigorchuk's cogrowth formula to variable edge lengths, provides a formula relating the bottom of the spectrum of weighted Laplacian on G\Cay(Fn) to the Poincaré exponent of G. Our main tool is the Patterson-Sullivan theory for Cayley graphs with variable edge lengths.
