Title:Oka principle: commutative and noncommutative. I
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Nigel Higson, Penn State
The original Oka principle asserts that smooth vector bundles on closed, complex submanifolds of complex affine space admit unique holomorphic structures. It has obvious implications for K-theory, and, through them, potential applications to noncommutative geometry, especially to the Baum-Connes conjecture. I'll discuss the original result (due to Oka and Grauert), and then actual as well as potential extensions to the noncommutative context.
