As a result, many topolo- gists and operator algebraists have feverishly begun trying to learn each others' subjects, and it appears certain that these two branches of mathematics have become deeply and permanently intertwined. Despite the fact that the whole subject is only about a decade old, operator K -theory has now reached a state of relative stability.
While there will undoubtedly be many more revolutionary developments and applications in the future, it appears the basic theory has more or less reached a "final form. It is the ambitious goal of these notes to fill this gap.
We will not treat applications in detail; however, we will outline the most striking of the applications to date in a section at the end, as well as mentioning others at suitable points in the text. Since its inception in the early s, the field has grown rapidly, until a deep and elaborate machinery has evolved. This book is the first to consolidate this material and does an excellent job of presenting the path of least resistance to the key results while keeping the reader informed about the many important sidetracks.

So there are only two K-groups, namely K 0 , which is equal to algebraic K 0 , and K 1. As a consequence of the periodicity theorem, it satisfies excision.
