Office: 436 Malott Hall

Lecture time and place:

Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:10AM - 11:25AM
206 Malott Hall


This is an introductory course on the analytic and algebraic theory of abelian (and jacobian) varieties. We will start with the classical complex-analytic case to build some intuition. Then we will discuss the general theory over other fields.

More advanced topics could include:


Familiarity with algebraic geometry, especially the language of schemes.


We will not follow any specific books. I will use the following resources while preparing for the lectures:
