An Introduction to K-theory and Cyclic Cohomology
by Jacek Brodzki
Publisher: arXiv 1996
Number of pages: 115
These lecture notes contain an exposition of basic ideas of K-theory and cyclic cohomology. I begin with a list of examples of various situations in which the K-functor of Grothendieck appears naturally, including the rudiments of the topological and algebraic K-theory, K-theory of C*-algebras, and K-homology.

The algebraic K-theory presented here is concerned with the structure theory of projective modules, and of their automorphism groups. Thus, it is a generalization off the theorem asserting the existence and uniqueness of bases for vector spaces ...

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.

Algebraic K-theory is a branch of algebra dealing with linear algebra over a general ring A instead of over a field. Algebraic K-theory plays an important role in many subjects, especially number theory, algebraic topology and algebraic geometry.
