Using harmonic maps, non-linear PDE & techniques from algebraic geometry this book enables the reader to study the relation between fundamental groups & algebraic geometry invariants of algebraic varieties. The reader should have a basic knowledge of algebraic geometry & non-linear analysis. This book can form the basis for graduate level seminars in the area of topology of algebraic varieties. It also contains present new techniques for researchers working in this area.
