Title: Nonnegative Ricci curvature and escape rate gap
Abstract: Let be an open -manifold of nonnegative Ricci curvature and let . We show that if has escape rate less than some positive constant , that is, minimal representing geodesic loops of escape from any bounded balls at a small linear rate with respect to their lengths, then is virtually abelian.
