K-theory of function fields

  • Andrew Ranicki
Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


The computation of the knot cobordism groups C * in Chaps. 40–42 will make use of the algebraic K- and L-theory of the function field F(z) of a field F. The function field is the quotient field of F[z], which is a Dedekind ring. The results of Chap. 18 are now specialized to describe the K-theory of F(z) — see Chap. 39 for the L-theory of F(z).
