### K-Theory and completion [duplicate]

I vaguely remember the existence of a statement that relates the $K$-theory (in the sense of Quillen) of a noetherian local ring $A$ with maximal ideal $\mathfrak{m}$ with the $K$-theory of the ...

I would guess that the following is true, and that somebody has worked it out, but I don't recall ever seeing it. Can anyone point me to any literature on it?
Let $G$ be a finite group. We know that ...

### Morphisms between $K_0$

I suppose this is a question with a well known answer. Suppose $A$ and $B$ are two algebras over some field and there is a map
$$
f: \operatorname{K_0}(A) \to \operatorname{K_0}(B)
$$
is it ...

### Any abelian category as filtered colimit of categories of projective modules

Recently I have heard somewhere that any (edit: small) abelian category can be expressed as the colimit of categories of projective modules over some rings. The remark was that this is "basically just ...

### Normal subgroups of $SL_2$ of a polynomial ring

What is known about normal subgroups of $SL_2(\mathbb{C}[X])$? Can one hope for a congruence subgroup property, i.e. that every (non-central) normal subgroup contains the kernel of the reduction ...

### K-theory of differential graded modules over differential graded algebras

Suppose you have a smooth vector bundle $E$ over a smooth manifold $X$. If you consider the algebra $ \Omega^\ast (E)$ of differential forms on $E$, it will be homotopy equivalent to the algebra of ...

### Explicit description of boundary map in algebraic K-theory

Recall that for a DVR A with fraction field F and residue field k, there is a "localization" fiber sequence in algebraic K-theory,
$$K(k) \rightarrow K(A) \rightarrow K(F).$$
In Remark 5.17 of his ...

### What's about “quantum modular forms”?

Do you know where one could read on "Modular Forms, K-theory and Knots"? The combination of themes sounds thrilling!
Edit: Zagier's paper on "quantum modular forms" will be published in Clay's ...

### Algebraic K-groups and braids

This is (I think) a reference request:
Are there calculations of any algebraic K-groups for the (group ring of) the Artin braid groups?
