Basic concepts of complex geometry, coherent sheaves and complex analytic spaces, positive currents and potential theory, sheaf cohomology and spectral sequences, Hermitian vector bundles, Hodge theory, positive vector bundles, etc.

This book combines foundational constructions in the theory of motives and results relating motivic cohomology to more explicit constructions. Prerequisite for understanding the work is a basic background in algebraic geometry.
