Abstract
We prove that any nonelementary geometrically finite group of
isometries of a pinched Hadamard manifold has nonzero algebraic en-
tropy in the sense of M. Gromov. In other words it has a uniform
exponential growth,
1 Introduction
Given a group generated by a finite set S we denote by BS(r) the the ball
of radius k in the Cayley graph of relative to S. The exponential growth
rate or (, S) = limk
k
|BS(k)| is well defined (by submultiplicativity).
