A new \(K\)-theory for algebraic varieties is developed, first in the “twisted” and then in the “non-twisted” case. To show that this approach is meaningful, results of Quillen are reproved. Thus, for a locally free sheaf \(\mathcal E\) on a quasi-compact scheme \(Y\), the natural homomorphism \[ K_ 0({\mathcal P}_ Y({\mathcal E})) \bigotimes_{K_ 0(Y)} K_ *(Y)\to K_ *({\mathcal P}_ Y({\mathcal E})) \] is seen to be an isomorphism. Also, for a quasi-compact scheme \(Y\), a Severi-Brauer scheme \(X\) of relative dimension \(n- 1\) over \(Y\) and the associated Azumaya algebra \(A\), the author shows that there is an isomorphism \[ \bigoplus^{n- 1}_{i= 0} K_ *(Y, A^{\otimes i})\to K_ *(X). \] Earlier results provable with similar methods are stated.
