We will study the structure of several classes of rings, including von Neumann regular rings, semilocal rings and operator algebras. The fundamental properties of these rings are codified in their categories of modules. Especially interesting is the full subcategory of the finitely generated projective modules over the ring. Our goal is to apply the machinery of K-Theory in an effective way. To this end, we will develop toosl for the study of non-stable objects associated to the rings.
