Title: Old and New Results on Subgroup Growth in Pro-p Groups.
Abstract: I will survey our current knowledge about subgroup growth in pro-p growth. In particular I will present new solutions to long standing open problems in the area:
1. What is the minimal subgroup growth of non-$p$-adic analytic pro-$p$ groups? (Joint work with Benjamin Klopsch and Jan-Christoph Schlage-Puchta.)
2. What are the subgroup growths of the Grigorchuk group and the Gupta-Sidki groups? (Joint work with Jan-Christoph Schlage-Puchta.)
3. Are there uncountable types of subgroup growth for pro-$p$ groups? (Joint work with Jan-Christoph Schlage-Puchta.)
The talk is self-contained.
