Abstract

Rognes and Weibel used Voevodsky's work on the Milnor conjecture to deduce the strong Dwyer-Friedlander form of the Lichtenbaum-Quillen conjecture at the prime 2. In consequence (the 2-completion of) the classifying space for algebraic K-theory of the integers [inline-graphic xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="01i" /] can be expressed as a fiber product of well-understood spaces BO and [inline-graphic xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="02i" /] over BU. Similar results are now obtained for Hermitian K-theory and the classifying spaces of the integral symplectic and orthogonal groups. For the integers [inline-graphic xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="03i" /], this leads to computations of the 2-primary Hermitian K-groups and affirmation of the Lichtenbaum-Quillen conjecture in the framework of Hermitian K-theory.
