New Problems in Several Complex Variables

Recent synergies among investigators in several complex variables (SCV), analysis, geometry, Cauchy-Riemann (CR) geometry, and partial differential equations present a variety of major new problems that are amenable to investigation by early-career mathematicians. These problems lie within such research areas as spectral theory of the d-bar Neumann and Kohn Laplacians, CR complexity theory, computational approaches to CR geometry, mapping properties of the canonical operators (such as the Bergman and Szegő projections), analysis on generalized Hartogs triangles and worm domains, and operator theory on general pseudoconvex domains. This workshop seeks to solidify the pipeline of young researchers into SCV by creating a supportive community and by providing a gradual approach to research-level problems that will lead to sustainable, long-term research collaborations.

Applications are being accepted on until the deadline of 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, February 15, 2020.
