**18 Lectures on K-Theory**

by Ioannis P. Zois

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 137

**Description**:

We present 18 Introductory Lectures on K-Theory covering its basic three branches, namely topological, analytic (K-Homology) and Higher Algebraic K-Theory, 6 lectures on each branch. The skeleton of these notes was provided by the author's personal notes from a graduate summer school on K-Theory organised by the London Mathematical Society (LMS) back in 1995 in Lancaster, UK.

**Algebraic K-Theory**

by

**Olivier Isely**-

**EPFL**

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.
