An Introduction to Riemann Surfaces and Algebraic Curves Complex 1-Tori and Elliptic Curves by Dr. T.E. Venkata Balaji, Department of Mathematics, IIT Madras. For more details on NPTEL visit httpwww.nptel.iitm.ac.insyllabus111106044Goals of Lecture 45A In Part A of this lecture, we define complex projective 2-space and show how it can be turned into a two-dimensional complex manifold. In Part B, we show that any complex torus is holomorphically isomorphic to the natural Riemann surface structure on the associated elliptic algebraic cubic plane projective curve embedded in complex projective 2-spaceKeywords for Lecture 45A Upper half-plane, complex torus associated to a lattice (or) grid in the plane, fundamental parallelogram associated to a lattice, doubly-periodic meromorphic function (or) elliptic function associated to a lattice, Weierstrass phe-function associated to a lattice, ordinary differential equation satisfied by the Weierstrass phe-function, zeros of the derivative of the Weierstrass phe-function, pole of order two (or) double pole with residue zero, triple pole (or) pole of order three, cubic equation, elliptic algebraic cubic curve, zeros of a polynomial equation, bicontinuous map (or) homeomorphism, open map, order of an elliptic function, elliptic integral, Argument principle, even function, odd function, analytic branch of the square root, simply connected, punctured torus, elliptic algebraic affine cubic plane curve, projective plane cubic curve, complex affine two-space, complex projective two-space, one-point compactification by adding a point at infinity, Implicit function theorem, graph of a holomorphic function, nonsingular (or) smooth polynomial in two variables, zero locus of a polynomial, solving an implicit equation locally for an explicit function, nonsingular (or) smooth point of the zero locus of a polynomial in two variables, Hausdorff, second countable, connected component, nonsingular cubic polynomial, discriminant of a polynomial, cubic discriminant, homogeneous coordinates on projective 2-space, punctured complex 3-space, quotient topology, open map, complex two-dimensional manifold (or) complex surface, complex one-dimensional manifold (or) Riemann surface, complex coordinate chart in two complex variables, holomorphic (or) complex analytic function of two complex variables, glueing of Riemann surfaces, glueing of complex planes, zero set of a homogeneous polynomial in projective space, degree of homogeneity, Eulers formula for homogeneous functions, homogenisation, dehomogenisation, a complex curve is a real surface, a complex surface is a real 4-manifold
