Cohomology theories are one of the most important algebraic
invariants of topological spaces and this has inspired the
definition of several different cohomology theories in algebraic
geometry. In this talk, we focus on algebraic K-theory, which is
one such classical cohomological invariant of algebraic varieties.
After motivating and introducing this notion, we discuss several
fundamental properties of algebraic K-theory of varieties with
algebraic group actions. Well-known examples of varieties with
group actions include toric varieties and flag varieties.
