Geometry & Topology Seminar

Title: Thom conjecture in higher dimensions
Speaker: Marko Slapar (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia)
Date: 11 January 2023
Time: 2:00 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department (Joint with the APRG Seminar)

The Thom conjecture, proven by Kronheimer and Mrowka in 1994, states that complex curves in $\mathbb{C}{\rm P}^2$ are genus minimizers in their homology class. We will show that an analogous statement does not hold for complex hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{C}{\rm P}^3$. This is joint work with Ruberman and Strle.
