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.

Logarithmic geometry deals with two problems in algebraic geometry: compactification and degeneration. Contents: The geometry of monoids; Log structures and charts; Morphisms of log schemes; Differentials and smoothness; De Rham and Betti cohomology.

This volume highlights the interface between string theory and algebraic geometry. The topics covered include manifolds of special holonomy, supergravity, supersymmetry, D-branes, the McKay correspondence and the Fourier-Mukai transform.

Algebraic geometry is the geometric study of sets of solutions to polynomial equations over a field (or ring). In this book the author maintains a reasonable balance between rigor and intuition; so it retains the informal quality of lecture notes.
