**Speaker:**Asghar GhorbanpourVector Bundles**Title:**

**Abstract:**This is a quick introduction to the theory of vector bundles

on topological spaces. We will go over some constructions like

vector bundles defined by clutching functions and hence classify

all vector bundles on spheres. We will also discuss how a proper

notion of vector bundles for algebras and C*-algebras can

be developed.

Please note that the approach to the topic in this series of lectures

can be considered as a complementary approach to the one taken in

the "characteristic classes seminar" and, therefore, the participants

of that seminar can also benefit from these sessions.
