This chapter reviews some basic facts about Kähler manifolds with special emphasis on projective algebraic varieties. All standard material is covered: complex structures, curvature properties, Hodge theory, Chern classes, positivity and Fano varieties, line bundles and divisors. Of particular interest is Yau's famous proof of the Calabi conjecture which ends this chapter.
