For students attending the summer school, it will be useful to know
something of period maps and period domains, Hodge structures and
variations thereof, normal functions, basic representation theory of Lie
groups, and the concept of a Mumford-Tate group. Here are some notes
which cover these basics:
J. Carlson, "Period
domains and period mappings"
E. Cattani, "Introduction
to variations of Hodge structure"
P. Griffiths, talk on "Mumford-Tate
groups and Mumford-Tate domains"
A. Knapp, "Structure
theory of semisimple Lie groups"
M. Kerr and G. Pearlstein, section 1 of "An exponential
history of functions with logarithmic growth"; alternatively
V.B-C of Kerr's Hodge
