Changes in algebraic geometry have made the subject increasingly inaccessible to all but specialists in the field. This comprehensive, self-contained monograph presents some of the main, general results of the theory accompanied by, and with emphasis on, their applications to the study of interesting examples and to the development of computational tools. The effective utilization of the techniques of elementary complex analysis and topology synthesize the classical and the modern into a cohesive presentation.
