Synopses & Reviews
The second volume of this modern account of Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge theory starts with the topology of families of algebraic varieties. The main results are the generalized Noether-Lefschetz theorems, the generic triviality of the Abel-Jacobi maps, and most importantly, Nori's connectivity theorem, which generalizes the above. The last part deals with the relationships between Hodge theory and algebraic cycles. The text is complemented by exercises offering useful results in complex algebraic geometry.

Synopsis
The second volume of this modern, self-contained account of Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge theory continues Voisin's study of topology of families of algebraic varieties and the relationships between Hodge theory and algebraic cycles. Aimed at researchers, the text is complemented by exercises which provide useful results in complex algebraic geometry.
