Abstract: Let $ \rho $ be an automorphism of a $ {C^ * }$-algebra $ A$. The mapping torus $ {T_\rho }(A)$ is the $ {C^ * }$-algebra of $ A$-valued continuous functions $ x$ on $ [0,1]$ satisfying $ x(1) = \rho (x(0))$. Using his Thom isomorphism theorem, A. Connes has shown that the $ K$-groups of $ {T_\rho }(A)$, with indices reversed, are isomorphic to those of the crossed product $ A{ \times _\rho }Z$. We provide here an alternative proof of this fact which gives an explicit description of the isomorphism.
