On growth of random groups of intermediate growth Academic Article uri icon


  • 2014 EMS Publishing House. All rights reserved. We study the growth of typical groups from the family of p-groups of intermediate growth constructed by the second author. We find that, in the sense of category, a generic group exhibits oscillating growth with no universal upper bound. At the same time, from a measuretheoretic point of view (i.e., almost surely relative to an appropriately chosen probability measure), the growth function is bounded by en for some < 1.
