Name: Complex Geometry
Location: Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore, Singapore.
This program concerns the study of the various geometric properties of complex manifolds, and more generally complex analytic varieties. Complex manifolds/varieties arise naturally in and are deeply connected to other branches of mathematics, including hyperbolic geometry, symplectic geometry, number theory and mathematical physics such as string theory. The aim of this program is to bring together groups of complex analysts, complex differential geometers and complex algebraic geometers to: (i) explain to other groups their methods and techniques; (ii) survey recent developments and disseminate their own research findings relating broadly to the area of complex geometry; (iii) chart new directions of research; and (iv) explore possible collaborations, especially among the different groups.
