Let G be finite group and K a number field or a p-adic field with ring of integers OK. In the first part of the manuscript we present an algorithm that computes the relative algebraic K-group K0(OK[G], K) as an abstract abelian group. We also give algorithms to solve the discrete logarithm problems in K0(OK[G], K) and in the locally free class group cl(OK[G]). All algorithms have been implemented in Magma for the case K = Q.
In the second part of the manuscript we prove formulae for the torsion subgroup of K0(Z[G], Q) for large classes of dihedral and quaternion groups.
