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.

The aim of this text is to give a proof, due to Hans Grauert, of an analogue of Mordell's conjecture. Contents: Introduction; Algebro-Geometric Background; Algebraic Curves; The Theorem of Grauert (Mordell's conjecture for function fields).

The main purpose of the present treatise is to give an account of some of the topics in algebraic geometry which while having occupied the minds of many mathematicians in previous generations have fallen out of fashion in modern times.

The paper aims at giving an introduction to the notion of quantum curves. The main purpose is to describe the discovery of the relation between the topological recursion and the quantization of Hitchin spectral curves associated with Higgs bundles.
