Complex Geometry of Nature and General Relativity
by Giampiero Esposito
Publisher: arXiv 1999
Number of pages: 229
An attempt is made of giving a self-contained introduction to holomorphic ideas in general relativity, following work over the last thirty years by several authors. The main topics are complex manifolds, spinor and twistor methods, heaven spaces.

We present classical and recent results on Kaehler-Einstein metrics on compact complex manifolds, focusing on existence, obstructions and relations to algebraic geometric notions of stability (K-stability). These are the notes for author's course.

This text studies the dynamics of iterated holomorphic mappings from a Riemann surface to itself, concentrating on the case of rational maps of the Riemann sphere. The book introduces some key ideas in the field, and forms a basis for further study.
