I have some questions about projective complex manifolds $X \subseteq \mathbb{P}_{\mathbb{C}}^n$. By applying Chow's theorem, we can consider them as projective varieties over $\mathbb{C}$. Regarding this, I have the following questions: \ \ Are the Hodge numbers of $X$, when considered as an algebraic variety, the same as when considered as a complex manifold? \ \ Is every holomorphic automorphism of $X$ as a complex manifold also an automorphism, when considered as an algebraic variety?

yesby the amazing GAGA indicated in the previous comment. The reference is: Serre, Géométrie algébrique et géométrie analytique. Ann. Inst. Fourier, Grenoble (1955). If you prefer English, there is a sketch in a book by Griffiths and Adams. Also Neeman has a book which goes through it, but I haven't looked at it. – Donu Arapura Aug 30 '11 at 23:41
