I will discuss how the quantitative higher index introduced previously can be used to relate the property of controlled scalar curvature on a manifold to certain properties of covers of the manifold. This combines the quantitative Lichnerowicz vanishing theorem with a pairing between quantitative operator K-theory and Lipschitz K-theory. This is joint work with Guoliang Yu.
