Abstract: Let $ R$ be the homogeneous coordinate ring of a smooth projective variety $ X$ over a field $ k$ of characteristic 0. We calculate the $ K$-theory of $ R$ in terms of the geometry of the projective embedding of $ X$. In particular, if $ X$ is a curve, then we calculate $ K_0(R)$ and $ K_1(R)$, and prove that $ K_{-1}(R)=\bigoplus H^1(C,\mathcal {O}(n))$. The formula for $ K_0(R)$ involves the Zariski cohomology of twisted Kähler differentials on the variety.
