Title: An Introduction to K-theory

Abstract: Topological K-theory was one of the first instances of a
generalized cohomology theory being used to successfully resolve classical
problems involving very concrete objects like vector fields and division
algebras. In this talk, we will briefly review some properties of vector
bundles, introduce the complex K groups, and discuss some of their
properties - including the all-important Bott periodicity theorem.
