Lectures on complex geometry, Calabi-Yau manifolds and toric geometry
by Vincent Bouchard
Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 63
These are introductory lecture notes on complex geometry, Calabi-Yau manifolds and toric geometry. We first define basic concepts of complex and Kahler geometry. We then proceed with an analysis of various definitions of Calabi-Yau manifolds. The last section provides a short introduction to toric geometry.

Both dynamical systems and symplectic geometry have rich theories and the time seems ripe to develop the common core with integrated ideas from both fields. We discuss problems which show how dynamical systems and symplectic ideas come together.

The major goal of these notes is to develop an observation that not only can gauge fields of the Yang-Mills type be unified with the Einstein model of gravitation, but also that when this unification is made they are described by pure geometry.

The definitive treatment of the revolutionary approach to measure theory, geometry, and mathematical physics. Ideal for anyone who wants to know what noncommutative geometry is, what it can do, or how it can be used in various areas of mathematics.
