**Abstract:** A Morse function on a Riemannian manifold can be used to study topology of the manifold. In this talk we will see construction of a cellular chain complex known as the Morse complex associated to a Morse function. If time permits we will briefly talk about how geodesics can be studied using Morse theory.
