 This volume contains previously unpublished papers on algebraic \(K\)theory written by Leningrad mathematicians over the last few years. The main topic of the first part is the computation of \(K\)theory and \(K\)cohomology for special varieties, such as group varieties and their principal homogeneous spaces, flag fiber bundles and their twisted forms, \(\lambda\)operations in higher \(K\)theory, and Chow groups of nonsingular quadrics. The second part deals with Milnor \(K\)theory: Gersten's conjecture for \(K^M_3\) of a discrete valuation ring, the absence of \(p\)torsion in \(K^M_*\) for fields of characteristic \(p\), Milnor \(K\)theory and class field theory for multidimensional local fields, and the triviality of higher Chern classes for the \(K\)theory of global fields.
