**Complex Geometry of Nature and General Relativity**

by Giampiero Esposito

**Publisher**: arXiv 1999**Number of pages**: 229

**Description**:

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.
