Betti numbers and stability for configuration spaces via factorization homology

### Ben Knudsen

##### Abstract

Using factorization homology, we realize the rational homology of the unordered configuration spaces of an arbitrary manifold $M$, possibly with boundary, as the homology of a Lie algebra constructed from the compactly supported cohomology of $M$. By locating the homology of each configuration space within the Chevalley–Eilenberg complex of this Lie algebra, we extend theorems of Bödigheimer, Cohen and Taylor and of Félix and Thomas, and give a new, combinatorial proof of the homological stability results of Church and Randal-Williams. Our method lends itself to explicit calculations, examples of which we include.
