Abstract

We show that quotients of local Banach algebras are local Banach algebras. This solves a problem posed by B. Blackadar in his book on K-Theory [BLA1]. Furthermore our techniques allow to prove additional density Theorems for the K-Theory of normed algebras stable under inverses and logarithms.
