This book contains proceedings of the research conference on algebraic \(K\)-theory that took place in Poznań, Poland, in September 1995. The conference concluded the activity of the algebraic \(K\)-theory seminar held at the Adam Mickiewicz University in the academic year 1994–1995. Talks at the conference covered a wide range of current research activities in algebraic \(K\)-theory. In particular, the following topics were covered:

- \(K\)-theory of fields and rings of integers.
- \(K\)-theory of elliptic and modular curves.
- Theory of motives, motivic cohomology, Beilinson conjectures.
- Algebraic \(K\)-theory of topological spaces, topological Hochschild homology and cyclic homology.

With contributions by some leading experts in the field, this book provides a look at the state of current research in algebraic \(K\)-theory.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory.
