The Seminar

The "Joint Seminar on Complex Algebraic Geometry and Complex Analysis" is a research seminar, organised by the algebraic and complex geometry research groups in Bochum, Essen, Cologne, and Wuppertal. The seminar meets roughly twice per semester for a full day in Bochum, Essen, Cologne, or Wuppertal. There are three talks per meeting, both by invited guests and by speakers from the organising universities. We aim to leave ample room for discussions.

The talks are open for everyone. Contact one of the organisers if you are interested in attending the meeting. We have some funds that might help to support travel for some junior participants.

Meetings of the seminar are partially supported by the DFG via

  • GRK 2553 "Symmetries and Classifying Spaces - analytic, arithmetic, and derived" (Essen)
  • SFB/TR 191 "Symplectic structures in geometry, algebra and dynamics" (Bochum-Cologne)

DATE AND PLACE


The next meeting will take place on Friday, June 18th, 2021 in a virtual format, hosted by Cologne.


TALKS


  • Gordon Heier (Houston): Complex analytic and diophantine height inequalities and hyperbolicity

    Abstract:
    It has been known for several decades that the area of complex analysis known as Nevanlinna theory (a.k.a. value distribution theory) has many similarities with the theory of diophantine approximation. In his 1983 thesis, Vojta suggested a concrete dictionary relating the two sides. In this spirit, we present our recent generalizations of Cartan's second main theorem in Nevanlinna theory and of the diophantine approximation theorems of Roth and Schmidt. Our approach is to bring modern techniques from algebraic geometry such as Seshadri constants, notions of positivity, and blowing-ups to bear on these types of problems. As applications, we obtain new hyperbolicity theorems generalizing the classical theorems of Picard on entire holomorphic functions and Siegel on integral points. This is joint work with Aaron Levin.


  • Louis Ioos (Tel Aviv): Quantization of Kähler-Ricci solitons

    Abstract:
    We will show how Kähler-Ricci solitons can be smoothly approximated by relative anticanonically balanced metrics, also called quantized Kähler-Ricci solitons. As a corollary, we recover the classical result of Tian and Zhu on uniqueness of Kähler-Ricci solitons up to automorphisms. Our approach involves a key simplification of a strategy due to Donaldson, via a semiclassical estimate on the quantum noise of Berezin-Toeplitz quantization following joint work with Kaminker, Polterovich and Shmoish.


  • Ursula Ludwig (Duisburg-Essen): An Extension of a Theorem by Cheeger and Müller to Spaces with Isolated Conical Singularities

    Abstract:
    An important comparison theorem in global analysis is the comparison of analytic and topological torsion for smooth compact manifolds equipped with a unitary flat vector bundle. It has been conjectured by Ray and Singer and has been independently proved by Cheeger and Müller in the ’70s. Bismut and Zhang combined the Witten deformation and local index techniques to generalise the result of Cheeger and Müller to flat vector bundles with arbitrary Hermitian metrics. The aim of this talk is to present an extension of the Cheeger-Müller theorem to spaces with isolated conical singularities by generalising the proof of Bismut and Zhang to the singular setting. In the first part of the talk I will recall the classical Cheeger-Müller theorem on a compact smooth manifold, as well as the main ideas of the approach of Bismut and Zhang to it.
