A basic question in algebraic geometry is whether there can be any non-constant maps between (smooth, projective) varieties of different types. I will explain some basic and some more sophisticated obstructions to the existence of such maps, mostly revolving around the notion of Kodaira dimension of an algebraic variety. I will also discuss some recent conjectures.
