Название: Algebraic K-groups as Galois modules
Автор: Snaith V.P.
This monograph presents the state of the art in the theory of algebraic K-groups. It is of interest to a wide variety of graduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers in related areas such as number theory and algebraic geometry. The techniques presented here are principally algebraic or cohomological. Throughout number theory and arithmetic-algebraic geometry one encounters objects endowed with a natural action by a Galois group. In particular this applies to algebraic K-groups and étale cohomology groups. This volume is concerned with the construction of algebraic invariants from such Galois actions. Typically these invariants lie in low-dimensional algebraic K-groups of the integral group-ring of the Galois group. A central theme, predictable from the Lichtenbaum conjecture, is the evaluation of these invariants in terms of special values of the associated L-function at a negative integer depending on the algebraic K-theory dimension. In addition, the "Wiles unit conjecture" is introduced and shown to lead both to an evaluation of the Galois invariants and to explanation of the Brumer-Coates-Sinnott conjectures. This book is of interest to a wide variety of graduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers in areas related to algebraic K-theory such as number theory and algebraic geometry. The techniques presented here are principally algebraic or cohomological. Prerequisites on L-functions and algebraic K-theory are recalled when needed.
