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.

This is not a typical math textbook, it does not present full developments of key theorems, but it leaves strategic gaps in the text for the reader to fill in. The original text underlying this book was a set of notes for the Math Olympiad Program.
