Abstract: A well-known Uniformization theorem in complex analysis states that any Riemann surface is covered either by the unit disc, the complex plane, or the Riemann sphere. I will discuss to what extent this result can be generalized to higher dimensional complex manifolds.

This talk will be accessible to general faculty.
