dc.description.abstract This dissertation introduces the concept of Q-Witt rings and SQ-Witt rings. A Q-Witt ring is defined as a finite quotient of a torsion free abstract Witt ring for an elementary 2-group G. Local Q-Witt rings are characterized using topological and ring theoretic tools. Q-Witt rings of the integral group ring Z[Z2] are classified and several properties are shown. An SQ-Witt ring is formed as a finite quotient of torsion free Witt rings of a formally real field. Recursive construction can be used to locate all SQ-Witt rings. en_US
