Abstract: Last week we discussed the basic properties of vector bundles over a compact base space X to introduce the topological K-theory. The set of isomorphism classes of vector bundles on X forms a commutative monoid. The idea of K-theory of X is the completion of this monoid to a ring. In this talk, we will discuss basic concepts in K-theory.
