# Global theory of linear systems: holomorphic vector bundles

1. Definitions. Gluing bundles from cylindrical charts.
2. Matrix cocycles and their equivalence.
3. Operations on bundles vs. operations with cocycles.
4. Example: linear bundles over $\mathbb C P^1$. Degree.
5. Sections (holomorphic and meromorphic) of holomorphic bundles.
6. Triviality of holomorphic vector bundles over $\mathbb D,~\mathbb C$ and classification of bundles over $\mathbb C P^1$: Cartan and Birkhoff–Grothendieck theorems.
