By V. Srinivas (auth.)

Algebraic K-Theory has develop into an more and more energetic sector of analysis. With its connections to algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, and quantity idea, it has implications for a large choice of researchers and graduate scholars in arithmetic. The publication relies on lectures given on the author's domestic establishment, the Tata Institute in Bombay, and in different places. a close appendix on topology was once supplied within the first variation to make the therapy obtainable to readers with a restricted heritage in topology. the second one variation additionally contains an appendix on algebraic geometry that includes the mandatory definitions and effects had to comprehend the middle of the publication; this makes the e-book obtainable to a much wider audience.

A crucial a part of the ebook is an in depth exposition of the information of Quillen as contained in his vintage papers "Higher Algebraic K-Theory, I, II." A extra straight forward evidence of the theory of Merkujev--Suslin is given during this version; this makes the therapy of this subject self-contained. An software can be given to modules of finite size and finite projective measurement over the neighborhood ring of a regular floor singularity. those effects lead the reader to a few attention-grabbing conclusions in regards to the Chow team of varieties.

"It is a excitement to learn this mathematically appealing book..." ---WW.J. Julsbergen, arithmetic Abstracts

"The booklet does an admirable task of proposing the main points of Quillen's work..." ---Mathematical Reviews

We define Gi(A) - Ki(AzI(A)); this is also sometimes denoted by K~(A). The inclusion P(A) C fld(A) induces a natural map K i ( A ) ~. Gi(A). 6), if A is (left) regular, then K i ( A ) ~Gi(A) (recall that a Noetherian ring A is left regular if every finitely generated A-module has a finite resolution by finitely generated projective A-modules). 5. 2). Let phisms for all i > 0 (i) G,(A) ~ A be Noetherian. Then there are natural isomor- a,(A[t]), induced by change of rings; (ii) Gi(A[t,t-1]) ~- Gi(A) r Gi-I(A).

To each simplicial set F 9A ~ , Set, we can associate a topological space IF[ called the geometric realization of F. This is defined to be the quotient space where for each n >_ 0, F(_n) is regarded as a discrete space. The equivalence relation ~ is defined as follows: given f 9m__ , n in A, let f 9 Am , An be the continuous map defined in Ex. 1) above. ~ (F(f)~, y) for all y E Am, where (~, ](y)) E F ( n ) x An, and (F(f)~, y) E F(m__)x Am. Let ~ be the equivalence relation so generated, and let IFI be the quotient space, with the quotient topology (an open subset is a set whose inverse image in I_In F(n_) x An is open).

Indeed, the only 2 non-degenerate simplices of (S n) are eo e (S n)(O) and fn e (S n)(n), so I(S")I is a C W complex with exactly 2 cells. If n > 0, all faces of f . are degenerate, so that I(S")I is obtained by attaching an n-cell to the 0-cell le0] with a constant attaching map. This is the standard description of S n as a CW-complex. 5) T h e C l a s s i f y i n g S p a c e of a C a t e g o r y . , a category whose objects form a set.
