Title:On the Newlander-Nirenberg theorem
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Dmitry Scheglov, Penn State

The Newlander-Nirenberg theorem gives a simple criterion for when an almost-complex structure comes from a complex structure.

All the known proofs of the Newlander-Nirenberg theorem heavily rely on analytic machinery related to PDE and KAM-type theories. In 2008 and 2009 hungarian physisist Gabor Etesi found a geometric approach to the theorem coming from Yang-Mills theory. We will give friendly introduction to this interesting theorem and discuss related recent papers by Etesi.
