On the vanishing of certain K-theory Nil-groups, by Hans J. Munkholm and Stratos Prassidis

Let G be group that it is the amalgamated product of two groups over an index two cyclic subgroup of prime order. We show that the Nil-groups appearing in Waldhausen's splitting theorem for computing the Whitehead group and the lower K-theory of G vanish.
