Let $P=(p(x,y))_{x, y\in N}$ be the transition matrix over countable states $N$.

Consider the generating Green function $G(x, y|t)=\sum_{0}^{\infty} p^n(x, y) t^n$, where $p^n(x,y)$ is the $(x,y)$-entry of the matrix $P^n$.

The spectral radius is given by $\rho(P)=\limsup_{n\to\infty} p^n(x,y)^{1/n}$. It is clear that $G(x,y|t)$ has convergence radius $1/\rho(P)$.

I'm now interested in when $G(x,y|t)$ diverges at $t=1/\rho(P)$. In particular, I'm considering that $P$ induces a random walk on a non-amenable group $N$. Does there any results related to this divergence in some interesting class of groups?

I'm newbie to random walk on graphs. Any comments would be extremely welcome!
