Sufficiently well-behaved simple C*-algebras can be classified by means of a simple K-theoretical invariant.
In the non-simple case, the ideal structure must also be considered, and in the commutative case this tells the
whole story, but even in relatively well-behaved (non-commutative) cases the ideal structure intertwines
in a complicated way with the invariant referred to, unless this disappears completely, in which case the ideal
structure again determines the algebra.
