An introduction to Calabi-Yau manifolds and special Lagrangian submanifolds from the differential geometric point of view, followed by recent results on singularities of special Lagrangian submanifolds, and their application to the SYZ Conjecture.

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.

An introduction to the ideas of microlocal analysis and the related symplectic geometry, with an emphasis on the role which these ideas play in formalizing the transition between the mathematics of classical dynamics and that of quantum mechanics.
by Gabriel Lugo - University of North Carolina at Wilmington
These notes were developed as a supplement to a course on Differential Geometry at the advanced undergraduate level, which the author has taught. This texts has an early introduction to differential forms and their applications to Physics.
