Schedule, syllabus and examination date

Choose semester

Course content

Holomorphic functions and mappings. Hartog´s extension phenomenon, domains of holomorphy and holomorphic convexity. Plurisubharmonic functions. The d-bar equation and the Levi problem. Oka´s approximation theorem, Runge pairs and the Cousin problems. Polynomial convexity and applications.

Learning outcome

The course gives an introduction to the most central aspects and methods in the theory of holomorphic functions of several complex variables, and applications of these to approximation- and mapping problems.

Admission to the course

PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.

MAT4800 – Complex Analysis/MAT9800 – Complex Analysis.
