We will begin by considering the classification problem for vector bundles on curves over the complex numbers.  This leads to classical notions of stability of coherent sheaves on a curve. In essence, we can use stability conditions to decompose the (derived) category of coherent sheaves on a curve into workable pieces. We will then generalise these ideas to any abelian or triangulated category with the (derived) category of coherent sheaves of higher dimensional varieties in mind. We will see that in the case of curves, up to an equivalence, there is a unique stability condition that agrees with the classical one. We will see that the set of stability conditions comes with a natural topology and is in fact a complex manifold.
