Algebraic K-theory and topological cyclic homology

New time and room: Tues., 16-18, WSC-N-U-3.04 (mostly, sometimes in the Tea Room

The goal this semester will be the main results of the recent paper of Clausen-Matthew-Morrow on $p$-adic $K$-theory and topological cyclic homology in characteristic $p$. Along the way we will go over a number of classical results on the relationship of algebraic $K$-theory and (topological) cyclic homology (Dundas-Goodwillie, McCarthy) and computations of mod $p$ $K$-theory in characteristic $p$ (Bloch-Kato, Levine-Geisser, Geisser-Hesselholt). We will also revisit some of these results from a more modern point of view (Bhatt-Morrow-Scholze).
