Seminar on A1-topology, motives and K-theory

Universality of hermitian K-theory

by Maria Yakerson (ETH Zürich)

958-115-833 (Zoom)




In this talk, we will give a new model of the motivic hermitian K-theory spectrum, which can be interpreted as a new universality property of hermitian K-theory in terms of its structure of transfers.  In addition, we will explain the connection with the analogous property of algebraic K-theory. This is joint work in progress with Marc Hoyois, Joachim Jelisiejew, and Denis Nardin.
