Abstract:

We prove the Farrell-Jones Isomorphism Conjecture for groups acting properly discontinuously via isometries on (real) hyperbolic $n$-space $\mathbb{H} ^n$ with finite volume orbit space. We then apply this result to show that, for any Bianchi group $\Gamma$, $Wh(\Gamma)$, $\tilde K_0(\mathbb{Z}\Gamma)$, and $K_i(\mathbb{Z}\Gamma)$ vanish for $i\leq -1$.
