K-theory of truncated polynomial algebras

This paper gives a survey of the calculation of the K-theory of a truncated polynomial algebras over a regular noetherian algebra over a field relative to the ideal generated by the variable. The calculation is by means of the cyclic homology of Connes and the topological cyclic homology of Bokstedt-Hsiang-Madsen.
