The KK-theory of Kasparov is now nearly twelve years previous; its energy, software and significance were amply proven. Nonethe much less, it continues to be a forbiddingly tricky subject with which to paintings and examine. there are lots of purposes for this. For something, KK-theory spans numerous often disparate mathematical regimes. for an additional, the literature is scattered and hard to penetrate. a number of the significant papers require the reader to provide the main points of the arguments in accordance with just a tough define of proofs. eventually, the topic itself has come to include a few tough segments, each one of which calls for lengthy and in depth examine. is to house a few of these difficul Our aim in scripting this e-book ties and give the chance for the reader to "get all started" with the idea. we haven't tried to provide a complete treatise on all features of KK-theory; the topic turns out too very important to undergo this sort of remedy at this aspect. What appeared extra vital to us was once a well timed presen tation of the very easy components of the idea, the functoriality of the KK-groups, and the Kasparov product.

It is then clear that S E®C is the grading operator for a grading of E®C. Define by 4>®id(a® c) = 4>(a)®c = j(4)(a) ® c), a E A, c E C. 4 it follows that (E®C, ®id, F®id) is a Kasparov A ® C - B ® O-module. We denote it by rc(£). 7. Two Kasparov A - B-modules £1 = (El, 1, F1 ), (E2 , 2, F 2) are isomorphic when there is an isomorphism 'ljJ : El --+ E2 of Hilbert B- modules such that S E2 o'ljJ = 'ljJ 0 SEll F2 o'ljJ = 'ljJ 0 Fl and 2 (a) 0 'ljJ = 'ljJ 0 1 (a), a EA. We write £1 ~ £2 in this case.
