Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students have studied and understand the basic definitions, constructions and propositions in the theory of complex manifolds and Hodge theory. They have studied important examples of complex manifolds and are able to analyse them with scientific methods. They are able to name the essential propositions of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections.

They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them.
