I will explain a proposal (proven under certain assumptions) how to
think about the relative K-group K_0(order, R) in an alternative way. Following
Burns-Flach, this is the group where the [noncommutative] equivariant Tamagawa
number lives. The rough idea to look at it differently: The universal
determinant functor of the category of LCA-groups (locally compact abelian)
turns out to be, suitably formulated, the classical Haar measure. So, to get an
"equivariant measure" (whatever these words a priori might mean...), one could
look at the universal determinant functor of LCA-groups, equipped with an action
of the order. It turns out, e.g. if the order is hereditary, that the absolute
K1-group of this category agrees with the relative K-group in the Burns-Flach
formulation.
A technical issue which might have discouraged people from looking at the
category of LCA groups is that, because of the topology on its objects, it is
not abelian. However, it is an exact category, and thus can be handled pretty
much like the category of projective modules. There is an explicit
generator-relator presentation for K1 of any exact category, which is very
different from the Swan presentation [P, phi, Q] of the relative K-group
formulation, and we will discuss the explicit comparison problem a little.
