$E_\infty$-cells and general linear groups of finite fields
We prove new homological stability results for general linear groups over finite fields.
These results are obtained by constructing CW approximations to the classifying spaces of
these groups, in the category of $E_\infty$-algebras, guided by computations of homology
with coefficients in the $E_1$-split Steinberg module.
