Abstract
A one hour introduction to topological K-theory, that nifty generalised cohomology theory that is built starting from the semi-ring of vector bundles over a space. As I'll need it on Thursday I'll also explain a model for K-theory in terms of difference bundles, and, if time permits, its connection with Clifford algebras.
