Geometrization of the Strong Novikov Conjecture for residually finite groups Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • In this paper, we prove that the Strong Novikov Conjecture for a residually finite group is essentially equivalent to the Coarse Geometric Novikov Conjecture for a certain metric space associated to the group. As an application, we obtain the Coarse Geometric Novikov Conjecture for a large class of sequences of expanders. © Walter de Gruyter.
