We introduce a function which measures the accessibility (in terms of the word metric) of non-solutions to word equations in finitely generated groups. We estimate the growth of this function in some examples; discuss the diversity of growth behaviours which can arise, and (time permitting) draw connections with effective notions of residual finiteness.

This talk is part of the Geometric Group Theory (GGT) Seminar series.
