## Representations of Galois groups and algebraic K-theory of fields

##### Abstract:

This talk will discuss some conjectures about the relationship between the algebraic K-theory of a field on the one hand and the so-called derived completed complex representation theory of the absolute Galois group of the field. I will also discuss the connection of this derived completion with the study of the space of deformations of a given representation.
