Prof. Claude LeBrun.
Office: Math Tower 3-108.
Office hours: TuTh 11--12, or by appointment.
This course will offer an introduction to the theory of compact complex manifolds, a rich and beautiful subject located at the crossroads between various mathematical disciplines, including complex analysis, algebraic geometry, Riemannian geometry, algebraic topology, and partial differential equations. Topics will include: Kähler metrics, sheaf cohomology, the Kodaira embedding theorem, rudiments of complex curves and surfaces.
While the lectures will be relatively self-contained, they will certainly presuppose a broad, basic mathematical knowledge on the level of the core courses. Students who have not yet passed the departmental comprehensive exam may therefore enroll only by permission of the instructor.
Grades will be based upon class participation.
