Complex Analysis and Geometry in Pisa

da Venerdì, 5 Ottobre 2018 a Sabato, 6 Ottobre 2018
Sala Stemmi, Palazzo della Carovana, Scuola Normale Superiore, Piazza dei Cavalieri, 7 - Pisa

Several complex variables have been at the core of various research problems, both in analysis and in geometry. Just to mention a few, one can think of the study of compact complex surfaces, Kaehler geometry or holomorphic functions' dynamics, all fully devloped and interesting fields of research. Moreover, there are thematics less famous or independent, which are nevertheless a rich source of interesting problems and of interaction with other area of mathematics, ranging from algebra to PDE theory, as CR analysis and geometry, the study of pseudoconvex domains in C^n, Stein varieties, complex manifolds and varieties and in general theory of Levi-flat submanifolds.

This meeting is an attempt to give a survey of more and less recent research activities in these areas between analysis and geometry, with the presence of speakers which are active in the field of several complex variables as well as speakers more active in other areas of mathematics, but whose works often touched "complex" themes.


The following speakers have been confirmed:

  • Vincenzo Ancona (Firenze)
  • Fabrizio Broglia (Pisa)
  • Giovanna Citti (Bologna)
  • Giuseppe Della Sala (American University in Beirut)
  • Sorin Dragomir (Potenza)
  • Antonella Nannicini (Firenze)
  • Nikolai Shcherbina (Bergische Universitat Wuppertal)
  • Zbigniew Slodkowski (U. of Illinois, Chicago)
  • Viorel Vajaitu (Lille 1)
  • Dmitri Zaitsev (Trinity College Dublin)

Scientific organizers

  • Samuele Mongodi (Politecnico di Milano)
  • Alberto Saracco (Parma)
