The Riemann-Roch theorem and its generalizations such as the Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch and the Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorems are among the most important results in algebraic geometry. After briefly recalling several versions of the theorem and the required input such as Chern classes and Todd classes, K-groups and Chow groups, the main part of the workshop will focus on the equivariant theory, i.e., on the theory in the presence of the action of a (linear algebraic) group. We will study equivariant K-theory (and localization theorems in equivariant K-theory) and equivariant intersection theory. Most of this is contained in the series [EG1], [EG2], [EG3], [EG4] of Edidin and Graham. The recent preprint [E] by Edidin could serve as a guide. We might also be able to look at the underlying results by Thomason. There are many connections to other topics, and we will certainly look at some interesting examples.
