$K$– and $L$–theory of the semi-direct product of the discrete 3–dimensional Heisenberg group by $\mathbb{Z}/4$

Abstract

We compute the group homology, the topological K–theory of the reduced C–algebra, the algebraic K–theory and the algebraic L–theory of the group ring of the semi-direct product of the three-dimensional discrete Heisenberg group by 4. These computations will follow from the more general treatment of a certain class of groups G which occur as extensions 1 K G Q 1 of a torsionfree group K by a group Q which satisfies certain assumptions. The key ingredients are the Baum–Connes and Farrell–Jones Conjectures and methods from equivariant algebraic topology.
