Bott periodicity plays a fundamental role in the definition and understanding of K-theory, the generalized cohomology theory defined by vector

bundles. This paper examines the proof, given by Atiyah and Bott[3], of the

periodicity theorem for the complex case.

We also describe the long exact sequence for K-cohomology in the category

of connected finite CW-complexes.
