Description:
This informal introduction is an extended version of a three hours lecture given at the 6th Peyresq meeting "Integrable systems and quantum field theory". In this text, we make an overview of some of the mathematical results which motivated the development of what is called noncommutative geometry.

The first seven lectures deal with the homological part of the story (cyclic homology, its various definitions, various additional structures it possesses). Then there are four lectures centered around Hochschild cohomology and the formality theorem.
