### Is there an 'easy' way to calculate $K_0(\mathbb{Z}[C_p])$?

For $C_2$ the cyclic group of order 2, I want to calculate $\tilde{K}_{0}(\mathbb{Z}[C_2])$. Now so far, I know by a theorem of Rim that $\tilde{K}_{0}(\mathbb{Z}[C_2])$ is isomorphic to the ideal ...

### Equivalent condition for normalizer problem

Let $\cal{U}$ be the unit group of group ring $\Bbb{Z}G$ then the Normalizer Problem (NP) states that $N_{\cal{U}}(G)=G\frak{z}$ where $\frak{z}=\cal{Z(U)}$. Now why (NP) is equivalent to saying that ...
