It has been conjectured that the groups of homological dimension one are precisely the nontrivial locally free groups. Some algebraic, geometric and analytic properties of any potential counter example to the conjecture are discussed.


This is a previously uncirculated manuscript with some notes and partial results about an as yet unsolved problem. Some of these results have been cited by Ioannis Emmanouil and Olympia Talleli in related research.
