Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics #76: Hodge Theory and Complex Algebraic Geometry I: Volume 1by Claire Voisin
Synopses & Reviews
This is a modern introduction to Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge structure. Coverage begins with variables, complex manifolds, holomorphic vector bundles, sheaves and cohomology theory (with the latter being treated in a more theoretical way than is usual in geometry). The book culminates with the Hodge decomposition theorem. In between, the author proves the Kaehler identities, which leads to the hard Lefschetz theorem and the Hodge index theorem. The second part of the book investigates the meaning of these results in several directions.
The first of two volumes offering a modern introduction to Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge structure written for students.
