The cyclotomic trace is a map from algebraic K-theory of a group ring to a certain topological refinement of cyclic homology. The target is naturally mapped to topological Hochschild homology, and the cyclotomic trace lifts the topological Dennis trace. Our cyclic homology can be defined also for "group rings up to homotopy", and in this setting the cyclotomic trace produces invariants of Waldhausen's A-theory. Our main applications go in two directions. We show on the one hand that the K… Expand
Uniqueness of the multiplicative cyclotomic trace
Making use of the theory of noncommutative motives, we characterize the topological Dennis trace map as the unique multiplicative natural transformation from algebraic K-theory to topologicalExpand
The Cyclotomic Trace in Algebraic K -Theory
This paper reviews the relations between algebraic K-theory and topological cyclic homology given by cyclotomic trace. If one, very superficially, views algebraic K-theory as classifying invertibleExpand

The cyclotomic trace and curves on K-theory
We give a functorial description of the topological cyclic homology of a ring A in terms of the relative algebraic K-theory of the truncated polynomial rings An=A[x]/xn. This description involves theExpand
Stable Real K-theory and Real Topological Hochschild Homology
The classical trace map is a highly non-trivial map from algebraic K-theory to topological Hochschild homology (or topological cyclic homology) introduced by B\"okstedt, Hsiang and Madsen. It led toExpand

The study of the algebraic K-theory of rings and schemes has been revolutionized over the past two decades by the development of “trace methods”. Following ideas of Goodwillie, Bökstedt andExpand
