We consider the algebraic K-theory of a truncated polynomial algebra in several commuting variables, K(k[x1......xn]/(x1a1…….xnan). This naturally leads to a new generalization of the big Witt vectors. If k is a perfect field of positive characteristic we describe the K-theory computation in terms of a cube of these Witt vectors on ℕ n . If the characteristic of k does not divide any of the ai we compute the K-groups explicitly. We also compute the K-groups modulo torsion for k = ℤ. To...[Show more]
