##### Introduction
K-theory is an interesting blend of algebra and geometry. Originally defined for (vector bundles over) topological spaces it is now also defined for (modules over) rings, giving extra algebraic information about those objects.

K-Theory is the smallest of the 61 active areas of the MSC scheme: only 515 papers with primary classification 19-XX during 1980-1997. But the area 19-XX was only available as a primary classification for Math Reviews papers starting with MR96; hence the count above is an undercount of the true size of the field. (Even granting this, however, K-theory is a fairly small field.) Browse all (old) classifications for this area at the AMS.

 The plan is for this to be a fairly short book focusing on topological K-theory and containing also the necessary background material on vector bundles and characteristic classes. Here is a provisional Table of Contents At present about half of the book is in good enough shape to be posted online, approximately 110 pages. What is included in this installment is: Chapter 1, containing basics about vector bundles. Part of Chapter 2, introducing K-theory, then proving Bott periodicity in the complex case and Adams' theorem on the Hopf invariant, with its famous applications to division algebras and parallelizability of spheres. Not yet written is the proof of Bott Periodicity in the real case, with its application to vector fields on spheres. Most of Chapter 3, constructing Stiefel-Whitney, Chern, Euler, and Pontryagin classes and establishing their basic properties. Part of Chapter 4 on the stable J-homomorphism. What is written so far is just the application of complex K-theory, using the Chern character, to give a lower bound on the order of the image of the stable J-homomorphism. Much of this material is already well covered in other sources, notably the classic books of Atiyah (

 Algebra Applied Mathematics Calculus and Analysis Discrete Mathematics ... Budney K-Theory A branch of mathematics which brings together ideas from algebraic geometry linear algebra , and number theory . In general, there are two main types of -theory: topological and algebraic. Topological -theory is the "true" -theory in the sense that it came first. Topological -theory has to do with vector bundles over topological spaces . Elements of a -theory are stable equivalence classes of vector bundles over a topological space . You can put a ring structure on the collection of stably equivalent bundles by defining addition through the Whitney sum , and multiplication through the tensor product of vector bundles . This defines "the reduced real topological -theory of a space." "The reduced -theory of a space" refers to the same construction, but instead of real vector bundles complex vector bundles are used. Topological -theory is significant because it forms a generalized cohomology theory, and it leads to a solution to the vector fields on spheres problem, as well as to an understanding of the -homeomorphism of homotopy theory Algebraic -theory is somewhat more involved. Swan (1962) noticed that there is a correspondence between the

##### Algebraic K-Theory
Posted By : Date : Comments : V. Srinivas, "Algebraic K-Theory" Algebraic K-Theory has become an increasingly active area of research. With its connections to algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory, it has implications for a wide variety of researchers and graduate students in mathematics. The book is based on lectures given at the author's home institution, the Tata Institute in Bombay, and elsewhere. A detailed appendix on topology was provided in the first edition to make the treatment accessible to readers with a limited background in topology. This new edition also includes an appendix on algebraic geometry that contains the required definitions and results needed to understand the core of the book; this makes the book accessible to a wider audience. A central part of the book is a detailed exposition of the ideas of Quillen as contained in his classic papers “Higher Algebraic K-Theory, I, II.” A more elementary proof of the theorem of MerkujevSuslin is given in this edition; this makes the treatment of this topic self-contained. An applications is also given to modules of finite length and finite projective dimension over the local ring of a normal surface singularity. These results lead the reader to some interesting conclusions regarding the Chow group of varieties. Download uploading.com

of functors from rings to abelian groups , for all integers n. For historical reasons, the lower K-groups K and K are thought of in somewhat different terms from the higher algebraic K-groups K n for n ≥ 2. Indeed, the lower groups are more accessible, and have more applications, than the higher groups. The theory of the higher K-groups is noticeably deeper, and certainly much harder to compute (even when R is the ring of integers The group K R ) generalises the construction of the ideal class group of a ring, using projective modules . Its development in the 1960s and 1970s was linked to attempts to solve a conjecture of Serre on projective modules that now is the Quillen-Suslin theorem ; numerous other connections with classical algebraic problems were found in this era. Similarly, K R ) is a modification of the group of units in a ring, using
