A NATO complicated research Institute entitled "Algebraic K-theory: Connections with Geometry and Topology" was once held on the Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 7 to December eleven of 1987. This assembly was once together supported via NATO and the traditional Sciences and Engineering learn Council of Canada, and was once backed partly through the Canadian Mathematical Society. This e-book is the amount of court cases for that assembly. Algebraic K-theory is basically the learn of homotopy invariants bobbing up from earrings and their linked matrix teams. extra importantly might be, the topic has turn into primary to the research of the connection among Topology, Algebraic Geometry and quantity idea. It attracts on all of those fields as an issue in its personal correct, however it serves in addition to an efficient translator for the appliance of options from one box in one other. The papers during this quantity are consultant of the present kingdom of the topic. they're, for the main half, examine papers that are basically of curiosity to researchers within the box and to these desiring to be such. there's a part on difficulties during this quantity which could be of specific curiosity to scholars; it features a dialogue of the issues from Gersten's recognized record of 1973, in addition to a brief record of latest problems.
