Algebraic K-theory brings together classical invariants of rings with homotopy groups of topological spaces. In general algebraic K-theory groups are difficult to compute, but in recent years methods in equivariant stable homotopy theory have led to many important K-theory computations. I will introduce this approach to K-theory computations, and discuss some of my recent joint work with Angeltveit on the algebraic K-theory of the group ring Z[C_2].
