(a mini-course)

**Time and Place**

Tuesday and Thursday, 2:30-3:50, Altgeld 443.

**Overview of the course**

This mini-course will be comprised of three sections. The first will be an overview of the required results on Riemann surfaces, the domains of pseudoholomorphic curves. This will culminate in a discussion of the Deligne-Mumford compactness theorem. The second section will be a reasonably detailed discussion of the definition and main properties of pseudo-holomorphic curves with special emphasis on their compactness properties. In the final section of the mini-course, we will survey some applications to symplectic topology.
