The Ranks of the Homotopy Groups of a Finite Dimensional Complex
Let $X$ be an $n$-dimensional, finite, simply connected CW complex and set $\alpha_X =\limsup_i \frac{\log\mbox{ rank}\, \pi_i(X)}{i}$. When $0\lt \alpha_X\lt \infty$, we give upper and lower bound for $ \sum_{i=k+2}^{k+n} \textrm{rank}\, \pi_i(X) $ for $k$ sufficiently large. We show also for any $r$ that $\alpha_X$ can be estimated from the integers rk$\,\pi_i(X)$, $i\leq nr$ with an error bound depending explicitly on $r$.

Homotopy Decompositions Involving the Loops of Coassociative Co-$H$ Spaces
James gave an integral homotopy decomposition of $\Sigma\Omega\Sigma X$, Hilton-Milnor one for $\Omega (\Sigma X\vee\Sigma Y)$, and Cohen-Wu gave $p$-local decompositions of $\Omega\Sigma X$ if $X$ is a suspension. All are natural. Using idempotents and telescopes we show that the James and Hilton-Milnor decompositions have analogues when the suspensions are replaced by coassociative co-$H$ spaces, and the Cohen-Wu decomposition has an analogue when the (double) suspension is replaced by a coassociative, cocommutative co-$H$ space.
