Abstract/Description: It is known that the category of Waldhausen categories is a closed symmetric multicategory and algebraic K-theory is a multifunctor from the category of Waldhuasen categories to the category of spectra. By assigning to any Waldhausen category the fundamental groupoid of the 1-type of its K-theory spectrum, we get a functor from the category of Waldhausen categories to the category of Picard groupoids, since stable 1-types are classified by Picard groupoids. We prove that this functor is a multifunctor to a corresponding multicategory of Picard groupoids.
