The algebraic K-theory presented here is, essentially, a part of general linear algebra. It is concerned with the structure theory of projective modules, and of their automorphism groups. Thus, it is a generalization, in the most naive sense, off the theorem asserting the existence and uniqueness of bases for vector spaces, and of the group theory of the general linear group over a field.

An exposition of K-theory and cyclic cohomology. It begins with examples of various situations in which the K-functor of Grothendieck appears naturally, including the topological and algebraic K-theory, K-theory of C*-algebras, and K-homology.

The author's objective was to provide participants of the Algebraic K-theory Summer School an overview of various aspects of algebraic K-theory, with the intention of making these lectures accessible with little or no prior knowledge of the subject.
