Developments in Oka theory since 2017.

  title={Developments in Oka theory since 2017.},
  author={F. Forstneri{\vc}},
  journal={arXiv: Complex Variables},
This paper is a survey of main developments in Oka theory since the publication of my book "Stein Manifolds and Holomorphic Mappings (The Homotopy Principle in Complex Analysis)", Second Edition, Springer, Cham, 2017. The paper is self-contained to the extent possible and is accessible also to readers who are new to the field. It will be updated periodically and available at this https URL.

Rational approximation of holomorphic maps.
Let X be a complex nonsingular affine algebraic variety, K a holomorphically convex subset of X, and Y a homogeneous variety for some complex linear algebraic group. We prove that a holomorphic mapExpand


Survey of Oka theory
Oka theory has its roots in the classical Oka principle in complex analysis. It has emerged as a subfield of complex geometry in its own right since the appearance of a seminal paper of M. Gromov inExpand
Holomorphic approximation: the legacy of Weierstrass, Runge, Oka-Weil, and Mergelyan
In this paper we survey the theory of holomorphic approximation, from the classical nineteenth century results of Runge and Weierstrass, continuing with the twentieth century work of Oka and Weil,Expand
Oka manifolds: From Oka to Stein and back
Oka theory has its roots in the classical Oka-Grauert principle whose main result is Grauert's classification of principal holomorphic fiber bundles over Stein spaces. Modern Oka theory concernsExpand
The Hartogs extension theorem for holomorphic vector bundles and sprays
We give a detailed proof of Siu’s theorem on extendibility of holomorphic vector bundles of rank larger than one, and prove a corresponding extension theorem for holomorphic sprays. We apply thisExpand
Deformations of Oka manifolds
We investigate the behaviour of the Oka property with respect to deformations of compact complex manifolds. We show that in a family of compact complex manifolds, the set of Oka fibres corresponds toExpand
Runge approximation on convex sets implies the Oka property
We prove that the classical Oka property of a complex manifold Y, concerning the existence and homotopy classification of holomorphic mappings from Stein manifolds to Y, is equivalent to a RungeExpand
Oka maps
Given a holomorphic submersion of reduced complex spaces, we prove that the basic Oka property of the submersion implies the parametric Oka property. This generalizes the corresponding result forExpand
Mergelyan ’ s and Arakelian ’ s theorems for manifold-valued maps
In this paper we show that Mergelyan’s theorem holds for maps from open Riemann surfaces to Oka manifolds. This is used to prove the analogue of Arakelian’s theorem on uniform approximation ofExpand
Elliptic characterization and localization of Oka manifolds
We prove that Gromov's ellipticity condition $\mathrm{Ell}_1$ characterizes Oka manifolds. This characterization gives another proof of the fact that subellipticity implies the Oka property, andExpand
Elliptic characterization and unification of Oka maps
We generalize our elliptic characterization of Oka manifolds to Oka maps. The generalized characterization can be considered as an affirmative answer to the relative version of Gromov’s conjecture.Expand
