Abelian varieties are projective algebraic varieties endowed with an Abelian group structure. Over the complex numbers, they can be described as quotients of a vector space by a lattice of full rank. They are analogs in higher dimensions of elliptic curves, and play an important role in algebraic geometry and number theory.
