Abstract: Given an ample groupoid, we construct a spectral sequence which consists of the groupoid homology in integral coefficient on the second sheet, converging to the K-groups of the groupoid C*-algebra when the groupoid has torsion free stabilizers and satisfies the strong Baum-Connes conjecture. The construction is based on the triangulated categorical approach to the Baum-Connes conjecture by Meyer and Nest. For the unstable equivalence relation of a Smale space with totally disconnected stable sets, this spectral sequence shows Putnam's homology groups on the second sheet. This is a joint work with Valerio Proietti.
