|TITLE||Complex hyperbolicity of subvarieties: some recent results and problems|
We discuss the notion of complex hyperbolicity with the main focus on the geometry of subvarties. Among many outstanding problems, particular attention will be placed on the general type conjecture of Lang and the Green-Griffiths-Lang conjecture about the degeneracy of entire holomorphic curves. These are related to some recent results in complex geometry and functional transcendence theory. If time permits, some connection to Hodge theory will also be discussed.
