Abstract: The intersection growth of a group $ G$ is the asymptotic behavior of the index of the intersection of all subgroups of $ G $ with index at most $ n$, and measures the Hausdorff dimension of $ G$ in profinite metrics. We study intersection growth in free groups and special linear groups and relate intersection growth to quantifying residual finiteness.
