Symmetry protected topological (SPT) phases have recently attracted a lot of
attention from physicists and mathematicians as a topological classification
scheme for gapped ground states. In this talk I will briefly introduce the
operator algebraic approach to SPT phases in the infinite-volume limit. In
particular, I will focus on the quasifree (free-fermionic) setting, where we

can adapt tools from algebraic quantum field theory to describe phases of
gapped ground states using K-homology and the coarse index.
