This is an advanced course in complex algebraic geometry presupposing only some familiarity with theory of algebraic curves or Riemann surfaces. The goal is to understand the Enriques classification of surfaces from the point of view of Mori-theory.

Semialgebraic geometry is the study of sets of real solutions of systems of polynomial equations and inequalities. These notes present the first results of semialgebraic geometry and related algorithmic issues. Their content is by no means original.
