Abstract: 

The minimal model program is an ambitious program that aims to describe the birational geometry of smooth complex projective varieties. In these lectures I will discuss recent progress that has led to the completion of this program for varieties of general type and to the proof of the the theorem on the finite generation of the canonical ring.

[NOTE] This series of lectures will be video-recorded and made available online.
Please note that anyone in the front rows of the room can be captured by a video camera.
