A first extension[edit]

I added the landmark example of a Hermitian vector bundle over a locally compact space. Also I made some minor changes to the introduction in the remarks concerning KK-theory and Morita equivalence. I might come back and add/change more, especially I want to add some stuff on operator algebras associated to C*-modules. Opinions please: is a discussion of Morita equivalence for C*-algebras appropriate in this article or should it be done in a separate one?

Note from the first contributor[edit]

I do not pretend that this article in any way covers all that could be said about the area, being a brief discussion of the history, an outline of the basic definitions, and the mention of a scant few examples and properties – it's slightly more than the Mathworld entry has, but not by a lot.

Then again, I only came to do this because I intended to revise a few things and thought it would be a useful exercise to make some refining edits to an existing article on the area, only to find that there wasn't one. It seemed an odd gap worth filling, so I filled it. Touch wood, a genuine expert might come along and make improvements.

It's been fun. --Sturm 15:39, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
