Homology groups for trivial group action

FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST (homology group for trivial group action):
First homology group: first homology group for trivial group action equals tensor product with abelianization
Second homology group: formula for second homology group for trivial group action in terms of Schur multiplier and abelianization|Hopf's formula for Schur multiplier
General: universal coefficients theorem for group homology|homology group for trivial group action commutes with direct product in second coordinate|Kunneth formula for group homology

Over the integers

The homology groups over the integers are as follows: $H_m(SL(2,5);\mathbb{Z}) = \left \lbrace \begin{array}{rl} \mathbb{Z}, & m = 0 \\ \mathbb{Z}/120\mathbb{Z}, & m \equiv 3 \pmod 4 \\ 0, & m \equiv 0,1,2 \pmod 4, m > 0 \\\end{array}\right.$

The sequence of homology groups for positive degrees has a period of 4, which is in keeping with the fact that $SL(2,5)$ is a finite group with periodic cohomology, as are all special linear groups of degree two over a finite field.
