The Riemann-Roch theorem is of utmost importance and a vital tool to the fields of complex analysis and algebraic geometry, specifically in the algebraic geometric theory of compact Riemann surfaces. It tells us how many linearly independent meromorphic functions there are having certain restrictions on their poles. The aim of this paper is to give two proofs of this important theorem and explore some of its numerous consequences. As an application, we compute the genus of some interesting algebraic curves or Riemann surfaces.
