The K-theory of finite fields: a synopsis

In my previous post, I proved that if $F$ is a finite field, then multiplicative group $F^\times$ is a cyclic group. This fact will play a small part in our description today of the $K$-theory of $F$. We will start by describing the classical $K$-theory of $F$ and then briefly talk about Quillen’s computation of […]
