HHHW04 - Manifolds

Coxeter groups were introduced by Tits in the 1960s as abstractions of the finite reflection groups studied by Coxeter. Any Coxeter group acts by reflections on a contractible complex, called the Davis complex. This talk focuses on a computation of the first three integral homology groups of an arbitrary Coxeter group using an isotropy spectral sequence argument: the answer can be phrased purely in terms of the original Coxeter diagram. I will give an introduction to Coxeter groups and the Davis complex before outlining the proof.
