## On the algebraic K-theory of singularities

##### Abstract:

Algebraic K-theory is a highly complicated invariant of algebraic varieties that encodes arithmetic, geometric and algebraic information. In this talk, I will try to make this distinction somewhat less vague and explain how to isolate some of the algebraic and geometric information K-theory provides about singularities, leading to proofs of various longstanding conjectures.
