Course Description.
The main theme of this course is Complex Geometry, roughly what is in (the selected sections from) Chapters 0-2 of Griffiths-Harris' book. Emphasis will be placed on explicit examples: Grassmannians, Riemann surfaces (i.e., algebraic curves). The pace will be brisk and students are expected to work outside the lecture room. Many long proofs will be left either to the Presentation session (see below) or to home study.

Homework and Presentation: The participants are encouraged to give presentations on some proofs skipped in the lectures and to turn in random HW problems assigned during the lectures. (Homework and presentation are not required.)
Exams: No exam.
Grading Policy: In accordance with the departmental tradition, A or A- is given to all actively participating students.
