Abstract

This text is an introduction to Lagrangian and special Lagrangian submanifolds. Special Lagrangian submanifolds were invented twenty years ago by Harvey and Lawson [18]. They have become very fashionable recently, after the work of McLean [25], leading to the beautiful speculations of Strominger, Yau and Zaslow [32] and the remarkable papers of Hitchin [19, 20] and Donaldson [11]
