Abstract: Hermitian K-theory can be described as the "real" analogue of algebraic K-theory, and plays a motivic role similar to the role played by real topological K-theory in classical stable homotopy theory. However, the abstract framework surrounding and supporting Hermitian K-theory is less well understood than its algebraic counterpart, especially in the case when 2 is not assumed to be invertible in the ground ring.
