Global Aspects of Complex Geometry
Over the period 2000–2006 the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft sponsored a special Schwerpunkt programme, entitled “Global Methods in Complex - ometry”. The articles of this volume grew out of this programme and document some of the scienti?c activity performed in the realm of the Schwerpunkt. They also aim at giving a broader overview of recent developments in various directions of Complex Geometry such as • Low-dimensional geometry: surfaces of general type, Fano threefolds, Calabi-Yau threefolds; • moduli spaces and families of varieties over curves; • Hodge theory, motivic cohomology and characteristicp-geometry; • moment maps and group actions on ?ag manifolds; • geometry of singular varieties: vector ?elds, equisingular families and v- tor bundles; • geometry of rational curves and pseudo-e?ective line bundles. The articles are devoted to a broad spectrum of topics, which range from purely algebraic to complex-analytic aspects of our subject. The participants of the Schwerpunkt would like to thank the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft for its generous support.
