**Date & Time:** Friday, 26th August at 4.00 - 5:00 P.M.

**Venue:** Ramanujan Hall

**Title: **Bishop's Lemma on Analytic Polyhedrons

**Speaker:** Prof. R. R. Simha (retired)
School of Maths T. I. F. R.

**Abstract: **An analytic polyhedron of order n (or less) in a noncompact
connected complex manifold X is the inverse image of the
unit polydisc in C^n by a holomorphic map of X into C^n.
In this talk, we explain [WINDOWS-1252?]Bishopâ€™s ingenious elementary
method of exhausting such a polyhedron by polyhedra
of lower order under suitable conditions, which enables
him to give easy proofs of deep results about Stein manifolds.
No background in Several Complex Variables is assumed.
