**An Introduction to K-theory and Cyclic Cohomology**

by Jacek Brodzki

**Publisher**: arXiv 1996**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.
