The paper is a short account of the talk given at the International Congress 1990. The author demonstrates how his powerful theory of calculus of functors can be applied to prove deep theorems, in this case a result on the connection of relative algebraic \(K\)-theory of spaces as defined by Waldhausen with relative topological cyclic homology as introduced by Bökstedt-Hsiang-Madsen. The reader should concentrate his attention to the methods and consider the result as a statement. Details including all assumptions necessary for a rigorous proof will appear elsewhere.
