A NATO complicated learn 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 used to be together supported through NATO and the ordinary Sciences and Engineering learn Council of Canada, and was once backed partly by means of the Canadian Mathematical Society. This booklet is the quantity of court cases for that assembly. Algebraic K-theory is largely the examine of homotopy invariants coming up from earrings and their linked matrix teams. extra importantly might be, the topic has turn into vital to the research of the connection among Topology, Algebraic Geometry and quantity thought. It attracts on all of those fields as a subject matter in its personal correct, however it serves in addition to a good translator for the applying of thoughts from one box in one other. The papers during this quantity are consultant of the present country of the topic. they're, for the main half, examine papers that are basically of curiosity to researchers within the box and to these intending to be such. there's a part on difficulties during this quantity which can be of specific curiosity to scholars; it includes a dialogue of the issues from Gersten's famous record of 1973, in addition to a brief checklist of recent problems.
