The theory of Witt groups can be viewed as a variant of algebraic K-theory whose relation with KO-theory is similar to that of algebraic and topological K-theory. I will discuss examples of smooth complex varieties for which the Witt groups are completely determined by the KO-groups and indicate how this leads to new calculations.
