There are four graded homework assignments.


There are no exams.

Topics Covered

There are five segments in this course, each involving about 6 to 8 lectures.

  1. Complex variable theory on open subsets of Cn. Hartog, simply pseudoconvex domains, inhomogeneous C. R.
  2. Theory of complex manifolds, Kaehler manifolds.
  3. Basic theorems about elliptic operators, pseudo-differential operators.
  4. Hodge Theory on Kaehler manifolds.
  5. Geometry Invariant Theory.


The grade for this class is based on the four homework assignments.
