The algebraic K-theory presented here is concerned with the structure theory of projective modules, and of their automorphism groups. Thus, it is a generalization off the theorem asserting the existence and uniqueness of bases for vector spaces ...

Algebraic K-theory is a branch of algebra dealing with linear algebra over a general ring A instead of over a field. Algebraic K-theory plays an important role in many subjects, especially number theory, algebraic topology and algebraic geometry.
