##### Abstract:

Given a curve (Riemann surface), one can construct an abelian variety: its Jacobian. Abelian varieties are quotients of vector spaces by lattices. The classical Torelli theorem states that the Jacobian determines the curve. We discuss some generalizations of this and their history.
