ABSTRACT Given a function f : X → Y of metric spaces, the classical Hurewicz theorem states that dim(X) ≤ dim(f) + dim(Y). We provide analogs of this theorem for the Assouad–Nagata dimension, asymptotic Assouad–Nagata dimension, and asymptotic dimension (the latter result generalizes a theorem of Bell and Dranishnikov). As an application, we estimate the asymptotic Assouad–Nagata dimension of a finitely generated group G in terms of the asymptotic Assouad–Nagata dimensions of the groups K and H from the exact sequence 1 → K → G → H → 1.

    ABSTRACT: We construct a countable p-local group with a proper invariant metric whose Assouad-Nagata dimension is strictly greater than the asymptotic dimension with linear control. This solves Problem 8.6 from the list [Dr]. We study asymptotic dimension with linear control $\ell$-$asdim_{\omega}$ that depends on a fixed ultrafilter on the naturals. It turns out that the Assouad-Nagata dimension is the supremum of $\ell$-$asdim_{\omega}$ on all $\omega$ and the asymptotic dimension with linear control is the minimum.

    ABSTRACT: The asymptotic dimension theory was founded by Gromov [M. Gromov, Asymptotic invariants of infinite groups,295] in the early 90s. In this paper we give a survey of its recent history where we emphasize two of its features: an analogy with the dimension theory of compact metric spaces and applications to the theory of discrete groups. Counting dimensions we are definitely not counting "things". Yu. Manin [71]
