Foliation Theory and Complex Geometry
Théorie des feuilletages et géométrie complexe
January – June 2020
​- Semester impacted by Covid-19 –

Prof. Jorge Vitório PEREIRA
IMPA, Rio de Janeiro
Jorge Vitório Pereira is interested in the theory of holomorphic foliations and its interactions with algebraic geometry. During his stay at CIRM, one of the areas he plans to develop in particular is that of the Kobayashi hyperbolicity of these foliations, as well as their birational invariants and arithmetical properties.
Local Project Leader
Prof. Erwan ROUSSEAU
Aix-Marseille Université
Erwan Rousseau is Professor at the Institut de Mathématiques de Marseille (I2M) and a Junior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France where his special area is complex analytic geometry. His research interests include complex algebraic and analytical geometry, and in particular questions related to the geometry of entire curves in algebraic varieties.

Invités du semestre



We would like to thank all the various sponsors who believed in the scientific value of our semester and made pledges to sponsor us.
Due to the Covid-19 situation, activities took place virtually. As a result, much of the promised sponsorship, which would have supported the board and lodging of participants and visitors, could not be used. Some sponsors, however, allowed us to use their grant to pay for additional audiovisual costs linked to the virtual transformation of two main events. We are deeply grateful for their support.
