On the asymptotic extension dimension

  • D. Repovš

We introduce an asymptotic counterpart of the extension dimension defined by Dranishnikov. The main result establishes the relationship between the asymptotic extensional dimension of a proper metric space and the extension dimension of its Higson corona.
