Abstract: We show that under Ricci curvature integral assumptions the dimension of the first cohomology group can be estimated in terms of the Kato constant of the negative part of the Ricci curvature. Moreover, this provides quantitative statements about the cohomology group, expanding results by Elworthy and Rosenberg.
