Abstract: Let be a Noetherian local ring. In this paper we supply formulae for computing the ranks of syzygy and Betti numbers of -modules of essentially monomial type. These modules are defined with respect to various -regular sequences. For example, finite length modules of monomial type over regular local rings of dimension are modules of essentially monomial type with respect to -regular sequences of length . If a module is of essentially monomial type with respect to an -regular sequence of length , then the rank of its -th syzygy is at least and its -th Betti number is at least .
