Abstracts
Introduction on Mixed Hypersurface Singularity
In this lecture series, I introduce the basic of mixed hypersurface singularity. A mixed polynomial is a polynomial which contains z_1,...,z_n and also their conjugates z_1,...,z_n.
Hypersurace defined by {f=0} involves much wider class of geometry.
We introduce the notion of Newton boundary, nondegeneracy and local Milnor fibration.

Introduction to Geometric Invariant Theory
Suppose that a reductive algebraic group G acts on a projective variety X. Geometric Invariant Theory (GIT), initiated by Mumford, is a method of taking a quotient X/G in the category of varieties. It has many important applications in the theory of moduli and is also related to problems in differential geometry. This minicourse aims to be a rapid introduction to this topic; it will be mostly about the construction of the GIT quotient and the Hilbert—Mumford criterion, but related differentialgeometric topics will also be mentioned.

On the Geometry of Holomorphic Sectional
Curvature and Rational Curves
In this lecture, we discuss the notation of holomorphic sectional
curvatures after we review hermitian metrics, Chern curvatures, and
their properties of holomorphic vector bundle over complex manifolds.
In particular, I explain a relation between positivity of holomorphic
sectional curvatures and the geometry of rational curves (that is,
1dim projective space embedded in manifolds). The goal of this talk
is to give a structure theorem for rationally connected fibrations of
projective manifolds with nonnegative holomorphic sectional
curvature.

Deformations of Fano and CalabiYau Varieties
In this lecture series we present an algebraic approach to
deformations of Fano and CalabiYau varieties. Fano varieties and
CalabiYau varieties are important objects in the classification of
algebraic varieties. In the classification of vareties, it is
fundamental to study their deformations. Starting from basic notions,
I'll explain how to see that they have unobstructed deformations. I'll
also explain the generalization to log CY varieties and normal
crossing CY varieties.
Daily description is as follows.
1: Basics on complex manifolds (analytic spaces) and sheaves
2: Preliminaries on Deformation theory
3: Deformations of CY varieties (BogomolovTianTodorov theorem)
4: Deformations of log CY and normal crossing CY varieties

Representation Theory of Complex Lie Algebras
In this lecture series we give an introduction to the representation theory of some complex Lie algebras. We review Lie groups, Lie algebras, Cartan subalgebra, Root systems. Then, starting from concrete examples we will work on sl(2,C), sl(3,C), sl(4,C) and finally sl(n,C) and their representations. We also go into theri geometric interpretations. Also spend time on sp(2n,C) and so(m,C) if time permits.

Conformal Invariants and Quasiconformal Maps
The theory of one complex variable and its geometric counterpart, the theory of Riemann surfaces, has classically been one of the main driving forces in the development of mathematics. It still offers a “treasure chest” of ideas which is worth rummaging through, both for a better understanding of current problems and as a source of inspiration for new research.
Our goal is to introduce the classical 1dimensional conformal invariant known as extremal length and to explain its role in applications, with special focus on the notion of quasiconformal maps underlying Teichmueller theory. We will then introduce a recent higherdimensional analogue, extremal volume.
Daily schedule:
Lectures 1,2: Conformal invariants and extremal length.
Lecture 3: Quasiconformal maps: the geometric definition.
Lecture 4: Quasiconformal maps: the analytic definition via the Beltrami equation.
Lecture 5: Extremal volume.

Introduction to compact Riemann surfaces
In this minicourse, I will give a brief introduction to the theory of compact Riemann surfaces. After giving basic definitions and discussing topological aspects, we will use the uniformization theorem to give a bijective correspondence between the isomorphism classes of compact Riemann surfaces and the isomorphism classes of algebraic curves. We will then go on to discuss the notion of Fuchsian groups.
Daily description is as follows:
RS 1: Examples of Riemann surfaces.
RS 2: Topological aspects.
RS 3: Ramified coverings and the RiemannHurwitz formula.
RS4: Uniformization theorem.
RS 4: Fuchsian groups.

Several Complex Variables
Several Complex Variables is a rather sizely branch of mathematics with links and ties to several other branches such as algebra, differential geometry, partial differential equations, algebraic geometry, and Banach algebras. For this reason, developments in SCV has provided valuable tools for these branches. Unfortunately, for the same reason, the prerequsite list for a basic SCV class has become a rather long list. The aim of this lecture series is not to cover this extensive subject in details, but to give a quick tour, and a basic understanding of its main concepts.
Daily description is as follows.
SCV 1: Review of One Variables and Some Definitions.
SCV 2: Holomorphic functions in several variables.
SCV 3: Convexity, pseudoconvexity and plurisubharmonicity.
SCV 4: CR Functions.
SCV 5: The dbar Problem.
SCV 6: Stein Manifolds and Cousin Problems.
