Title: Algebraic K-theory of pure braid groups (joint work with C.S. Aravinda and F.T. Farrell) Abstract: In this article we introduce the notion of strongly poly-free groups and show that the Whitehead group of any such group vanishes. In fact we show that the Lower K-groups of any such groups vanish. We also show that the pure braid groups are strongly poly-free. We use geometric results on 3-manifolds to prove the result.
