Much like operads and monads, Lawvere theories are a way of encoding algebraic structures, such as those of modules over a ring or sets with a group action. In this talk, we discuss the algebraic K-theory of Lawvere theories, which contains information about automorphism groups of these structures. We’ll discuss both particular examples and general constructions in the K-theory of Lawvere theories, including examples showing the limits of Morita invariance and the construction of assembly-style maps. This is joint work with Markus Szymik.
