Let us view topological K-theory as a functor $K$ from the cateory of compact pairs (that is, a compact Hausdorff spaces with a distinguished closed subset) to the category of $\mathbb Z/2$-graded Abelian groups. We could also restrict to second countable spaces and thus countable groups.

An additive operation on topological K-theory is just a natural transformation from $K$ to $K$. These natural transformations form an Abelian group under addition.

*Question:* What is the isomorphism class of this group?

Examples of operations are discussed in Efton Park's book and in Max Karoubi's book, but I cannot find discussion of the collection of all (additive) operations.

*Edit:* After looking at Karoubi's book again, I have to state that it actually contains a very satisfactory treatment of operations in K-theory.
