Classify matrices up to similarity over arbitrary (commutative) ring.

One can define the K-theory space of a monoidal category $S$ in which every morphism is an isomorphism as the classifying space $B(S^{-1}S)$. Then we show that this definition coincides with the ...

A question on equivariant K-theory

Let $G$ be a connected linear algebraic group over $\mathbb{C}$ and $X$ a $G$-variety. Let $K_G^0(X)$ be the Grothedieck group of coherent $G$-equivariant sheaves on $X$, and $K_G^i(X)$ for $i>0$ ...
