September 29, 2006 from 16:00 to 18:00 (Montreal/Miami time) On location
I will give a historical account of the study of CR structures. I will discuss some relations with the theory of several complex variables and with partial differential equations. I will indicate how the analysis of CR structures involves techniques of microlocalization and multiplier ideals. The emphasis will be on on existence and regularity theorems which lead to the E. E. Levi problem in several complex variables and to Hans Lewy's example of a non-solvable PDE and its generalizations.
