• # Abstract

In this note, we shall give another proof of a theorem of Aramayona and Souto, namely the group of simplicial automorphisms of the sphere complex $\mathbb{S}(M)$ associated to the manifold $M=\sharp_nS^2\times S^1$ is isomorphic to the group Out $(F_n)$ of outer automorphisms of the free group $F_n$ of rank $n\geq 3$.
