Abstract:
We study K_2 of one-dimensional local domains over a field of characteristic 0, introduce a conjecture, and show that this conjecture implies Geller's conjecture. We also show that Berger's conjecture implies Geller's conjecture, and hence verify it in new cases.

Abstract:
The goal of this paper is to prove the Riemann-Roch isomorphism for the higher equivariant K-theory of varieties with action of a linear algebraic group.

Abstract:
The goal of this paper is to prove a version of the non-abelian localization theorem for the rational equivariant K-theory of a smooth variety $X$ with the action of a linear algebraic group $G$. We then use this to prove a Riemann-Roch theorem which represents the completion of the higher equivariant K-theory of $X$ at various maximal ideals of the representation ring, in terms the equivariant higher Chow groups. This generalizes a result of Edidin and Graham to higher $K$-theory with rational coefficients.

Abstract:
For a quasi-projective variety $X$ over a field, with the action of a split torus, we construct a spectral sequence relating the equivariant and the ordinary higher Chow groups. We then completely describe the equivariant higher Chow groups of smooth projective varieties in terms of the ordinary higher Chow groups of certain subvarieties. As applications, we show that for a connected reductive group $G$ acting on a smooth variety $X$, the forgetful map from the rational equivariant higher $K$-theory to the ordinary $K$-theory is surjective and we describe its kernel. We also generalize the eqivariant Riemann-Roch theorem of Edididn and Graham to the higher K-theory of such varieties. We finally discuss the equivariant K-theory of these varieties with finite coefficients and prove the equivariant version of the Quillen-Licthenbaum conjecture as a simple application of the techniques involved in proving the above results.

Abstract:
For a reductive group scheme over a regular semi-local ring, we prove an equivarinat version of the Gersten conjecture. We draw some interesting consequences for the representation rings of such reductive group schemes. We also prove the rigidity for the equivariant K-theory of reductive group schemes over a henselian local ring. This is then used to compute the equivariant K-theory of algebraically closed fields.

Abstract:
We study the equivariant cobordism theory of schemes for action of linear algebraic groups. We compare the equivariant cobordism theory for the action of a linear algebraic groups with similar groups for the action of tori and deduce some consequences for the cycle class map of the classifying space of an algebraic groups.

Abstract:
Let $G$ be a connected linear algebraic group over a field $k$ of characteristic zero. For a principal $G$-bundle $\pi: E \to X$ over a scheme $X$ of finite type over $k$ and a parabolic subgroup $P$ of $G$, we describe the rational algebraic cobordism and higher Chow groups of the flag bundle $E/P \to X$ in terms of the cobordism of $X$ and that of the classifying space of a maximal torus of $G$ contained in $P$. As a consequence, we also obtain the formula for the cobordism and higher Chow groups of the principal bundles over the scheme $X$. If $X$ is smooth, this describes the cobordism ring of these bundles in terms of the cobordism ring of $X$.

Abstract:
We study the equivariant cobordism theory of schemes for torus actions. We give the explicit relation between the equivariant and the ordinary cobordism of schemes with torus action. We deduce analogous results for action of arbitrary connected linear algebraic groups. We prove some structure theorems for the equivariant and ordinary cobordism of schemes with torus action and derive important consequences. We establish the localization theorems in this setting. These are used to describe the structure of the ordinary cobordism ring of certain smooth projective varieties.

Abstract:
We study the negative $K$-theory of singular varieties over a field of positive characteristic and in particular, prove the vanishing of $K_i(X)$ for $i < -d-2$ for a $k$-variety of dimension $d$.
