I have created tag-wiki and tag-excerpt simply containing the first sentence of the Wikipedia article. (So that the tag-wiki is at least non-empty.)
The question which at the moment have [subgroup-growth] tag are:

Q: Is $SL_1(D)$ toplogically finitely generated, for $D$ a division algebra over a local field?

kneidellI've been struggling with this one all day, and I was wondering if someone can give me a hand with the proof. I'm not even sure if the group in question is finitely generated, so I would appreciate if anyone will tell me otherwise as well. remark For infinite topological groups, I write $G$ is f...

Q: growth and decay finding t formula?

RoyThe amount of fish in the main pool increases every month by 5%. Today, we have 6 tonnes of fish in the pool. In how many years will there be 6.6 tonnes of fish in the pool? So I can solve it like this: mt = 6.6 m0 = 6 q = 1 + 5/100 = 1.05 t = ? 6.6 = 6 * 1.05 ^ t 6.6 / 6 = 1.1 1.1 = 1.05^...

Q: using L'Hopital to compare two exponentials

cmroanirgoI have a textbook question that asks to use L'Hopital to show which of the two functions: $e^{0.1 x}$ vs $x^{10}$ is dominant as $x \to \infty$. That is, using: $$\lim_{x \to \infty} \left( \frac {x^ {10} } {e^{0.1 x}} \right) = \lim_{x \to \infty} \left( \frac {10x^ 9 } {0.1e^{0.1 x}} \right) ...

Q: Exponential Growth Rates

SondraSo if you are given two different numbers to determine a growth rate, do you use to largest number compared to the value when x=0. For example the problem I am working on is: Your grandfather purchased a house for $45,000 in 1952 and it has increased in value according to a function y = v(x), whe...

Q: Compound interest coumpounded n time per year formula. $A=P\left(1+\frac{r}{n}\right)^{nt}$ intuition behind it.

user153001I know that the compound interest formula for the interest compounded annually is given by $$A=P(1+r)^t$$ I know the intuition behind it. But why the compound interest formula for the interest coumpounded n time per year is: $$A=P\left(1+\frac{r}{n}\right)^{nt}$$ What's the intuition behind it a...

Q: Allee Effect Population Problem

user151451For certain species of organisms, the effective growth rate $\ N' / N $ is highest at intermediate N. This is called the Allee effect. For example, imagine that it is too hard to find mates when N is very small, and there is too much competition for food and other resources when N is large. ...

Q: growing number of sample

Mr Assistancethe problem i have is as following, which i would like a solution to I am a tomato seller Everyday i sell tomatoes. I also have a demand forecast for tomatoes required everyday countrywide. Im trying to equate the number of tomatoes i sell everyday to the demand forecast. This is fine and i can ...

Only one of them seems to be about group theory. I am going to retag the questions which do not fit this tag. (Which are not about group theory.)

It is maybe also worth mentioning that if the tag contains only a single questions, it will be removed after 6 months.
I was searching on meta.SO what exactly low usage means; it seems that tag having only 1 question is going to be deleted after 6 months: meta.stackexchange.com/a/48418 Another related meta.MO question: What happens to zombie tags?Martin Sleziak Jan 6 '12 at 13:18

It is still worth asking whether the tag is not too specialized. (For example, they don't have such tag at MathOverflow, which is a more specialized sites.)
But since that tags which are used rarely are regularly cleaned-up by an automated process, I don't think we should worry too much about it.
(On the other hand, if someone thinks the tag is worth preserving, it would be good to add at least one other question. I do not know anything about this topic, so I do not feel confident enough to add the tag to some questions. Maybe some questions shown when searching for subgroup growth among questions tagged could be suitable candidates.)
