The $\ell^2$–homology of even Coxeter groups

Timothy A Schroeder

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 1089–1104
Abstract

Given a Coxeter system (W,S), there is an associated CW–complex, denoted Σ(W,S) (or simply Σ), on which W acts properly and cocompactly. This is the Davis complex. The nerve L of (W,S) is a finite simplicial complex. When L is a triangulation of S3, Σ is a contractible 4–manifold. We prove that when (W,S) is an even Coxeter system and L is a flag triangulation of S3, then the reduced 2–homology of Σ vanishes in all but the middle dimension.
