Closed orbits in homology classes for Anosov flows

We consider transitive Anosov flows φ: MM and give necessary and sufficient conditions for every homology class in H1(M,ℤ) to contain a closed φ-orbit. Under these conditions, we derive an asymptotic formula for the number of closed φ-orbits in a fixed homology class, generalizing a result of Katsuda and Sunada.
