Title: Gromov's Theorem: Finitely generated groups and their growth

Abstract:

We study finitely generated groups and their growth functions focusing on the case of nilpotent groups (Bass' formula) and solvable groups (the theorems of Milnor and Wolf). We then state Gromov's theorem and explain the strategy of the proof.
