Algebraic K-Theory of Rings of Integers in Local and Global Fields

  • Charles WeibelAffiliated withDepartment of Mathematics, Rutgers University


This survey describes the algebraic K-groups of local and global fields, and the K-groups of rings of integers in these fields. We have used the result of Rost and Voevodsky to determine the odd torsion in these groups.
