Let Q be a finite group acting on a group G by group automorphisms, C(G) the bar complex and HQ(G,A) the homology of invariant group chains defined in K. Knudsonā€™s paper ``The homology of invariant group chains''. In this paper we construct a spectral sequence converging to H(Q,C(G)⊗A) whose second term is isomorphic to HQ (G,A) for some coefficients. When this spectral sequence collapses this yields an isomorphism HQ (G,A) ≅ H(Q, C(G)⊗A), which we use to compute this homology for some cases. The construction uses a decomposition of the bar complex C(G) in terms of the induction from some isotropy groups to the group Q. We also decompose the subcomplex of invariants C(G)Q by Q-orbits and use this to compute the invariant 1-homology H1Q(G, ℤ) for some cases.
