Title: Nevanlinna's Theory and Holomorphic Dynamics
Abstract: Nevanlinna's theory is one of the great achievements in 20th century mathematics. It has a numberof striking translations in other mathematical theories. The main question in Nevanlinna's theory can be seen as a distribution problem for preimages of points (or varieties) under holomorphic maps. Similar distribution problems arise in Holomorphic Dynamics. I will discuss these analogies using two main examples: holomorphic endomorphisms of k-dimensional complex projective space and equidistribution results (unique ergodicity) for singular holomorphic foliations by Riemann surfaces in complex projective spaces.
