"Griffith's theorem and its applications"

In this talk, we will see how all of the machinery we built so far in this seminar, culminates in the statement of Griffith's theorem, which produces a well behaved description of the derivative of the period map in terms of the Kodaira-Spencer map. The power of this result will be explored through concrete examples. In particular, We will make our first encounter with a Torelli theorem.
