**Algebraic K-Theory**

by Olivier Isely

**Publisher**: EPFL 2006**Number of pages**: 45

**Description**:

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. In this document, I will briefly introduce the definitions of the K-theory groups.
