Colloquium: Tuesday, May 23, 2 pm. Speaker: Mattias Jonsson (Michigan). Title: “Non-Archimedean limits of complex structures”.

Non-Archimedean analytic spaces are analogues of complex manifolds when replacing the complex numbers by a non-Archimedean field, such as p-adic numbers or complex Laurent series. I will give several examples of situations involving degenerations in complex analysis and geometry that can be studied using non-Archimedean analytic geometry in the sense of Berkovich.
