Title: On pseudoconvex domains and some of their applications

Location: V-158, VRII
Time: Monday 10 October at 15:00

Abstract:

One of the most commonly studied object in several complex variables is pseudoconvex domains, which I will introduce. Domains of holomorphy in \(\mathbb{C}^n\), they are studied in more general complex manifolds thanks to a powerful notion: plurisubharmonicity. Those domains are the support of the famous inhomogeneous Cauchy-Riemann equation or also called \(\bar\partial\)-equation. Combined with the existence of a bounded plurisubharmonic function, I will also talk about some applications to complex geometry and complex dynamics.
