__Abstract:__

Quantitative $K$-theory for $C^\ast$-algebras originated in the work of Guoliang Yu on the Novikov conjecture and the coarse Baum-Connes conjecture.
More recently, it has also been used to study the $K$-theory of various classes of $C^\ast$-algebras and has been generalized to be applicable to more general Banach algebras.
In this series of lectures, I will give an introduction to the notion of quantitative $K$-theory for Banach algebras.
I will also present some joint work with Kang Li on $L^p$ uniform Roe algebras associated to metric spaces with bounded geometry.
One result is about surjectivity of the map on K_0 groups induced by the diagonal inclusion when the metric space has asymptotic dimension one,
and this will be an example where quantitative $K$-theory is used.
Another result (not involving $K$-theory) is about the rigidity of these algebras, which indicates that they are (possibly) more rigid when p is not 2 than when p=2.
