Rank gradients of infinite cyclic covers of Kähler manifolds

Friedl, Stefan ; Vidussi, Stefano


Given a Kahler group G and a primitive class phi is an element of H-1 (G; Z), we show that the rank gradient of (G, phi) is zero if and only if Ker phi <= G is finitely generated. Using this approach, we give a quick proof of the fact (originally due to Napier and Ramachandran) that Kahler groups are not properly ascending or descending HNN extensions. Further investigation of the properties of ...
