Book launch : Representation Theory and Higher Algebraic K-Theory.
The publisher's flyer says, "This is the first book to present higher algebraic K-theory of orders and group rings as well as characterize higher algebraic K-theory as Mackey functors that lead to equivariant higher algebraic K-theory and their relative generalizations. Thus, this book makes computations of higher K-theory of group rings more accessible and provides novel techniques for the computations of higher K-theory of finite and some infinite groups. Authored by a Premier Authority in the field...". more ...
