K-theory is often considered a complicated mathematical theory for specialists only. This book is an accessible introduction to the basics and provides detailed explanations of the various concepts required for a deeper understanding of the subject. Some familiarity with basic C*algebra theory is assumed. The book then follows a careful construction and analysis of the operator K-theory groups and proof of the results of K-theory, including Bott periodicity. Of specific interest to algebraists and geometrists, the book aims to give full instruction. No details are left out in the presentation and many instructive and generously hinted exercises are provided. Apart from K-theory, this book offers complete and self contained expositions of important advanced C*-algebraic constructions like tensor products, multiplier algebras and Hilbert modules.

"Should be of great value and benefit to graduate students and anyone starting to learn K-theory. It is a comprehensive source for many references and could easily be used to teach a course. The reviewer enjoyed reading the book and highly recommends it to all K-theory lovers." --Mathematical Reviews
