# Chad Schoen : Algebraic geometry and complex analytic geometry

This talk will introduce parts of algebraic geometry and complex analytic geometry which are closely related to each other. These are important areas of pure mathematics. The presentation will start from scratch and hopefully reach the statement of a famous conjecture by the end. The first half of the talk should be accessible to incoming graduate students who have worked an exercise or two on projective space. Familiarity with complex analysis at the undergraduate level would be helpful. The second half of the talk will make use of cohomology. Students who have taken a semester of algebraic topology and are now taking a second semester together with a course on Riemann surfaces should be able to follow many of the details. Those who have completed a course on Riemann Surfaces and on Algebraic Geometry should be able to follow all the details. Professional mathematicians working in this general area will likely find new insights few and far between if present at all.
