Idea

A complex manifold is a manifold holomorphically modeled on polydiscs $D$ in $\mathbb{C}^n$ (complexified $n$-dimensional cartesian space):

Properties

Covers

Proposition

Every complex manifold admits a good open cover in $Disk_{cmpl}$.

For instance (Maddock, lemma 3.2.8).

Examples

Complex 1-dimensional: Riemann surfaces

A complex manifold of complex dimension 1 is called a Riemann surface.

Calabi-Yau manifolds

A complex manifold whose canonical bundle is trivializable is a Calabi-Yau manifold. In complex dimension 2 this is a K3 surface.
