Publisher: University of Toronto 1997
Number of pages: 113
The intent of this text is not to give a thorough treatment of the algebraic and differential geometry of complex manifolds, but to introduce the reader to material of current interest as quickly as possible. The author provides a number of interesting and non-trivial examples, both in the text and in the exercises.

A new synthesis of the principles of quantum mechanics and Relativity is proposed in the context of complex differential geometry. The positivity of the energy implies that wave functions and fields can be extended to complex spacetime.

An attempt is made of giving a self-contained introduction to holomorphic ideas in general relativity, following work over the last thirty years by several authors. The main topics are complex manifolds, spinor and twistor methods, heaven spaces.
