Extending differential forms and the Lipman-Zariski conjecture

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 -
11:15am to 12:15pm
The Lipman-Zariski conjecture states that if the tangent sheaf of a complex variety is locally free then the variety is smooth. In joint work with Patrick Graf we prove that this holds whenever an extension theorem for differential 1-forms holds, in particular if the variety in question has log canonical singularities.
