**Lectures on complex geometry, Calabi-Yau manifolds and toric geometry**

by Vincent Bouchard

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 63

**Description**:

These are introductory lecture notes on complex geometry, Calabi-Yau manifolds and toric geometry. We first define basic concepts of complex and Kahler geometry. We then proceed with an analysis of various definitions of Calabi-Yau manifolds. The last section provides a short introduction to toric geometry.
