Jeremiah HELLER (Wuppertal): Equivariant K-homology and a theorem of Thomason

Abstract: In groundbreaking work Thomason establishes a fundamental comparison between Bott-inverted algebraic K-theory and étale K-theory with finite coefficients. Over the complex numbers, Walker has shown how to deduce Thomason's theorem using a semi-topological K-homology theory. In joint work with J. Hornbostel we establish an equivariant generalization of Walker's Fundamental Comparison Theorem and use it to deduce the equivariant version of Thomason's theorem for complex varieties with action by a finite group.
