In joint work with Matt Tointon we study the fine structure of approximate groups. We give various applications to growth, isoperimetry and electric resistance in finite vertex-transitive graphs. In particular, we solve two problems raised by Benjamini and Kozma, and deduce an analogue for finite graphs of Varopoulos’s result that an infinite Cayley graph has a recurrent random walk if an only if it has a finite-index subgroup isomorphic to Z or Z^2.
