Abstract

 Markus Szymik and I computed the homology of the Higman-Thompson groups by first showing that they stabilize (with slope 0), and then computing the stable homology. I will in this talk give a new point of view on the computation of the stable homology using Thumann's "operad groups". I will also give an idea of how scanning methods can enter the picture. (This is partially joint work with Søren Galatius.)
