If you have a question about this talk, please contact Burt Totaro. It is a classical theorem that the topological real vector bundle K-theory KO(X) of a space X can be recovered from the simpler complex vector bundle K- theory KU(X). More precisely, KO(X) is equivalent to the space of homotopy fixed points of KU(X) under a natural involution. In this talk I will explain to what extent the algebraic analogue holds where real vector bundle K-theory is replaced with higher Grothendieck-Witt groups (aka algebraic hermitian K-theory) and complex vector bundle K-theory with ordinary algebraic K-theory. The proof of our main theorem uses a version of the Quillen-Lichtenbaum conjecture for hermitian K-theory which is of independent interest. This is joint work with Berrick, Karoubi and Ostvaer.
