Welcome to AMS Open Math Notes, a repository of freely downloadable mathematical works in progress hosted by the American Mathematical Society as a service to researchers, teachers and students. These draft works include course notes, textbooks, and research expositions in progress. They have not been published elsewhere, and, as works in progress, are subject to significant revision. Visitors are encouraged to download and use these materials as teaching and research aids, and to send constructive comments and suggestions to the authors.

Lectures on K-theory and operator algebras

Following on from my lectures on operator algebras (also on AMS Open Math Notes), this provided a slightly non-standard introduction to operator K-theory (for instance, we make early contact with some of the fundamental ideas of KK-theory, and give a detailed discussion of the use and significance of "holomorphic functional calculus" arguments).
