Title: Descent theorems in algebraic K-theory and applications

Abstract: In this talk I plan to discuss recent descent results in algebraic K-theory of rings or schemes, for instance descent under abstract blow-ups. I will then explain how the latter is applied to study the K-theory of non-Archimedean rings and rigid spaces. This is based on joint work with M. Kerz and S. Saito, with M. Kerz and F. Strunk, and with M. Land.
