Three Dimensional Cauchy Riemann Manifolds

SPECIAL GEOMETRIC PDE SEMINAR
Topic:Three Dimensional Cauchy Riemann Manifolds
Speaker:John Bland
Affiliation:University of Toronto
Date:Monday, March 23
Time/Room:3:30pm - 4:30pm/S-101

A three dimensional strongly pseudoconvex Cauchy Riemann manifold can be considered as a contact manifold with a conformal structure on the hyperplane distribution. In this talk, we will discuss CR structures near the standard one on S^3 , the embeddability of such structures and other consequences.
