Hermitian \(K\)-theory of exact categories. (English) Zbl 1328.19009
Summary: We study the theory of higher Grothendieck-Witt groups, alias algebraic hermitian \(K\)-theory, of symmetric bilinear forms in exact categories, and prove additivity, cofinality, dévissage and localization theorems - preparing the ground for the theory of higher Grothendieck-Witt groups of schemes as developed in the author’s papers [Invent. Math. 179, No. 2, 349–433 (2010; Zbl 1193.19005); “Hermitian \(K\)-theory, derived equivalences and Karoubi’s fundamental theorem”, preprint, http://www.math.lsu.edu/~mschlich/research/prelim.html]. No assumption on the characteristic is being made.
