Please find the details below.  Anyone desiring to attend the talk or join the mailing
list is warmly invited to get in touch:  

Title: The K-theory functor 

Abstract: In this talk we will see how to associate a r(i)ng structure to equivalence
classes of complex vector bundles on a compact hausdorff space.  We begin by revisiting
the direct sum and tensor product constructions, which will define our addition and
multiplication respectively.  We then prove functorial properties of K and ~K.  Finally
we will sketch the proof of the fundamental product theorem.  

Time and date: 3 pm Wednesday* 02 September
