note = {We study groups and monoids that are equipped with an extra structure called factorability.
A factorable group can be thought of as a group G together with the choice of a generating set S and a particularly well-behaved normal form map G → S*, where S* denotes the free group over S. This is related to the theory of complete rewriting systems, collapsing schemes and discrete Morse theory.
Given a factorable monoid M, we construct new resolutions of Z over the monoid ring ZM. These resolutions are often considerably smaller than the bar resolution E*M.
As an example, we show that a large class of generalized Thompson groups and monoids fits into the framework of factorability and compute their homology groups. In particular, we provide a purely combinatorial way of computing the homology of Thompson's group F.},
