In this talk I will define an invariant which represents a quantitative version of Vershik and Gordon’s property of “local embeddability into finite groups”. This mirrors quantitative versions of residual finiteness, which have been much studied in the past decade. I will estimate this invariant in several examples, including wreath products and other similar group extensions. I will also describe a family of groups which, while residually finite, are easier to approximate using finite local embeddings than finite quotients.
