**Course description**

When studying the geometry of a certain Banach space , one often needs to determine the extreme points of its closed unit ball, . Among these, an interesting subset is formed by the so-called exposed points. (By definition, a point of is exposed for the ball if there is a hyperplane in that touches at that point only.) In this minicourse, our purpose is to characterize the extreme — and sometimes exposed — points of the unit ball in several holomorphic spaces. In particular, this will be done for subspaces of the Hardy spaces and that consist of functions with prescribed spectral gaps. Also, we shall take a look at model subspaces and Toeplitz kernels in these Hardy spaces.

**Everyone is welcome!**
