A Scholl ([Cambridge]) Zeta elements and modular forms Session: Ktheory and arithmetic
shall explain the construction of `zeta elements' in K_k of KugaSato varieties which form an Euler system, related via the dual exponential to critical
Lvalues of weight k cusp forms, and via the regulator to noncritical
values.

C Soule (IHES) Bounds on the torsion in the Ktheory of algebraic integers Session: Ktheory and arithmetic
Given a natural integer $m$ and a number field $F$ we find an
upper bound for the cardinality of the torsion in $K_{m}(A)$,
where $A$ is the ring of integers of $F$. The bound depends on $m$, the
absolute degree of $F$ and its absolute discriminant. This bound seems
much too big but it is explicit.

A new kind of measure matching properties of twodimensional structures on arithmetic surfaces is used to define zeta integrals on $K$delic groups and to study its properties.

D Burns (King's College London) On equivariant Tamagawa numbers, Weil \'{e}tale cohomology and values of Lfunctions Session: Ktheory and arithmetic
We show that, in certain cases, Lichtenbaum's WeilEtale cohomology leads to a more explicit interpretation of the (equivariant) Tamagawa number conjecture. We then use this interpretation to formulate, and in certain cases also prove, a universal refinement of the well known (and seemingly rather different) conjectures of Stark, of Gross, of Tate,
of Rubin and of Darmon concerning the values of derivatives of abelian
Lfunctions.

U Jannsen ([Regensburgh]) Kato complexes: conjectures and results Session: Ktheory and arithmetic
For rather general schemes Kato defined complexes which are Galois cohomology analogues of the Gersten complexes in Ktheory (Crelle 366: `A Hasse principle for 2dimensional local fields'). He stated some conjectures and proved them in low dimensions. I will report on the results known so far (partly due to myself) and some relationships with étale dulaity (recent joint work with Saito and Sato).
