If G is a group that satisfies the Farrell-Jones fibred isomorphism conjecture, the lower algebraic \(K\)-theory of the group ring \(\mathbb Z[G]\) may be calculated in principle if one knows the lower algebraic \(K\)-theory of the group rings of the virtually cyclic subgroups of G (see Appendix A).
