These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.

These notes are an enlarged version of a three-month course of lectures. Their style is informal. I hope they will serve as an introduction to some current research topics, for students who have had a one year course in modern algebraic geometry.

The purpose of these lectures is to introduce the notion of a Stokes-perverse sheaf as a receptacle for the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence for holonomic D-modules. They develop the original idea of P. Deligne in dimension one.
