Recent results on the structure of the group K2 of a field and its connections with the Brauer group are presented. The K-groups of Severi-Brauer varieties and simple algebras are computed. A proof is given of Milnor's conjecture that for any field F and natural number n > 1 there is the isomorphism Rn,F:K2(F)/nK2(F)nBr(F). Algebrogeometric applications of the main results are presented.
