This paper concerns the notion of complexity, a measure of the growth of the Betti numbers of a module. We show that over a complete intersection R the complexity of the tensor product M ⊗R N of two finitely generated modules is the sum of the complexities of each if ToriR (M, N) = 0 for i ≥ 1. One of the applications is simplification of the proofs of central results in a paper of C. Huneke and R. Wiegand on the tensor product of modules and the rigidity of Tor.
