Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 115

Description:
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 ...
