    The slides from my tutorial on automorphisms of the Calkin algebra at the Luminy set theory workshop, September 22-26, 2008, are available here and also in a more compact version They may be used as a guide to the proof. Please note that the terminology used in the talk somewhat differs from that used in the paper. I hope that a slightly different angle may help in understanding the proof.
