Nil groups in algebraic K-theory

Monday 17th May, 2010 16:00-17:00 Mathematics Building, room 204


The contribution of nilpotent matrices to algebraic K-theory of rings has been a mystery and a stumbling block for the classification of manifolds. I will describe some recent progress, especially for group rings where the group maps epimorphically to the infinite dihedral group.
