A chain morphism for Adams operations on rational algebraic K-theory

  • Elisenda Feliu (a1)

For any regular noetherian scheme X and every k ≥ 1, we define a chain morphism ψk between two chain complexes whose homology with rational coefficients is isomorphic to the algebraic K-groups of X tensored by ℚ. It is shown that the morphisms ψk induce in homology the Adams operations defined by Gillet and Soulé or the ones defined by Grayson.
