“Inoue Surfaces”

In a series of a three articles, Kodaira classified complex surfaces and he described almost all of them except what he referred to as class VII surfaces. His student, Inoue, came up with new, non-trivial, examples of such surfaces which were later on named after him. In this talk, we will briefly explain the importance of these surfaces, then we go through the actual construction of the surface and we will see some of their main properties that will help us classify vector bundles over them.
