Title: Beauville’s results on classification of Kähler manifolds with $c_1(K_X)=0$.

Abstract: We will discuss Beauville’s paper giving a classification statement for (compact, complex) Kähler manifolds with vanishing first Chern class. The Hilbert scheme of points comes in to construct examples of ``irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds’’, one of the pieces appearing in the classification.
