Localization for Singular Varieties

  • V. Srinivas
Part of the Modern Birkhauser Classics book series (MBC)


In this chapter we prove a localization theorem of Quillen for singular varieties, and a generalization of it due to Levine. These are then used to prove the so-called “Fundamental Theorem” (9.8), which computes K i (A[t, t −1]), and to relate the study of 0-cycles on normal surfaces to modules of finite length and finite projective dimension over the local rings at singular points. We begin with Quillen’s localization theorem, proved in Higher Algebraic K-Theory II.
