Second mod $2$ homology of Artin groups

Toshiyuki Akita and Ye Liu

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 18 (2018) 547–568
Abstract

In this paper, we compute the second mod 2 homology of an arbitrary Artin group, without assuming the K(π,1) conjecture. The key ingredients are (A) Hopf’s formula for the second integral homology of a group and (B) Howlett’s result on the second integral homology of Coxeter groups.
