Locally symmetric spaces and $K$–theory of number fields

Thilo Kuessner

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 12 (2012) 155–213
Abstract

For a closed locally symmetric space M = ΓGK and a representation ρ: G GL(N, ) we consider the pushforward of the fundamental class in H(BGL(¯)) and a related invariant in K(¯) . We discuss the nontriviality of this invariant and we generalize the construction to cusped locally symmetric spaces of –rank one.
