These notes are an enlarged version of a three-month course of lectures I gave at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. 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 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).

Theory of torus embeddings has find many applications. The point of the theory lies in its ability of translating meaningful algebra-geometric phenomena into very simple statements about the combinatorics of cones in affine space over the reals.

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.
