An example of a non-amenable exact group without free subgroups.
I don't think the group above is known to be exact. |

It seems so, by Gelander and Zuk ams.org/mathscinet/search/… |

Folner sets and balls
Thanks so much for this beautiful post! Accidentally, I also analyzed this presentation (and I'm an old fan of the combinatorial hyperbolic plane). I need to think more about your intuition concerning arbitrarly generating sets. |

Folner sets and balls
In general a free semigroup won't help you that much, since you need both lower and upper bounds estimation on the sizes of balls... |

Folner sets and balls
It looks unlikely, nevertheless, I don't have a disproof. In fact, the shape of Folner sets in exponential growth groups is quite unclear to me, so I asked the most basic question I could come up with. I have no decent evidence for or against, but often enough the quantity $liminf c_{n+1}/c_n$, where $c_n$ is the size of the ball, is less than the growth... so it is not clear so far. |

Folner sets and balls
Thanks for the comment. A sequence of balls in my phrasing was meant to be a subsequence of the sequence of the balls, indeed. I hope it is clear. |

Speed of random walks in groups
You re welcome. Very interesting, I don´t know any reference or proof... I might think about it, maybe there is a simple reason for it. I let you know if I succeed. Dan |

Added the Computer Science tag, since the metric in question is mostly studied by computer scientists. |
