This is a broad graduate level course on complex algebraic geometry on
7.5 credits. The course is primarily intended for PhD students
in **analysis and other non-algebraic subjects**. We will also almost
exclusively take an analytic viewpoint: that is, work with holomorphic
functions and complex manifolds rather than commutative algebra. A
secondary goal is that PhD students specializing in
algebra meet an analytic side of their subject.

## Contents (tentative)

- Complex manifolds & analytic subvarieties
- Examples: tori, hypersurfaces, quotients, Grassmannians, ...
- Projective space & blow-ups
- Holomorphic vector bundles & divisors
- Hodge theory, Serre duality & Lefschetz (1,1)-theorem
- Kodaira's Embedding theorem, Chow's theorem & Kodaira's Vanishing theorem.

## Prerequisites

A general background in mathematics (as obtained by a master degree in mathematics). A course in commutative algebra or algebraic geometry is**not required**. Basic courses in complex analysis, topology and differential geometry would be useful but I'll try to recall the necessary background.
