Learning outcomes of the course unit
Introduction to complex geometry. Cohomological aspects of complex manifolds.
At the end of the course, students will be familiar with the theory of holomorphic function of several complex variables, with the differential calculus on complex maniflds and with the Hodge theory on compact Hermitian manifolds. They will also be able to tackle the resolution of problems of a theoretical and practical nature in the area of complex differential geometry.

Lectures and classroom exercises.
The lectures will be organized as follows:
in presence with the possibility of enjoying the lessons also remotely in synchronous mode (via Teams). To promote active participation in the course, various individual and small group activities may possibly be proposed,
through the use of the resources present in Elly.
During lectures in traditional mode, the
topics will be formally and rigorously presented. There will be exercises using the elly platform. The course will give particular emphasis to application and computation aspects, while not letting out
the theoretical aspect. The classroom exercises are aimed at showing how and where the abstract results can be applied to make the students understand better the relevance of what they are studying.
Assessment methods and criteria
The final exam consists of an oral test and the resolution of exercises assigned during the course on the elly platform.
If due to the persistence of the health emergency it was
necessary to integrate with the remote modality the carrying out of the exams will proceed as follows:
remote oral questions.
Exercises and problems to be performed outside of class hours will be assigned by the teacher.
Notes from the teacher will be distributed. The course notes in PDF format and all the material used during the lessons and exercises are made available to the students on the Elly educational platform.
