Abstract: Degeneracy theorems are proved for holomorphic mappings from affine algebraic manifolds to projective algebraic manifolds of equal dimensions. A mapping is degenerate if it satisfies a growth estimate and omits a set of $ \kappa $-plane sections of positive capacity; the capacity being defined in terms of a singular integral. The capacity is a more delicate method of measuring the size of a set of $ \kappa $-plane sections than Hausdorff measure and arises naturally by considering the singular integrals in the First Main Theorem of Nevanlinna.
