Plurifine Potential Theory
The fine topology is the weakest topology on domains in R^n that makes all subharmonic functions continuous. It allows to introduce finely subharmonic --- and in the 2-dimensionalcase also finely holomorphic --- functions in a natural way. These are functions that satisfy theanalogue of the mean value property and of the Cauchy-Riemann equations in the fine setting.
In C^n the plurifine topology, which makes all plurisubharmonic functions continuous, is challenging. In this setting we introduced a weak and a strong concept of plurifinely plurisubharmonic and plurifinely holomorphic functions. Strong will imply weak, but it isunknown whether the two concepts are the same.
However, we will start by discussing motivation for this kind of generalizations. Some phenomena in classical complex analysis make it natural to study these plurifinely functions. Next we present some of our work on plurifinely plurisubharmonic and holomorphic functions.
(All this is joint work, partly with Said El Marzguioui, and partly with Mohamed El Kadiri and Bent Fuglede.)
