The Green-Griffiths-Lang conjecture stipulates that for every projective variety X of general type over C, there exists a proper algebraic subvariety of X containing all non constant entire curves f : C $\rightarrow$ X. Using the formalism of directed varieties, we prove here that this assertion holds true in case X satisfies a strong general type condition that is related to a certain jet-semistability property of the tangent bundle TX . We then give a sufficient criterion for the Kobayashi…

The study of entire holomorphic curves contained in projective algebraic varieties is intimately related to fascinating questions of geometry and number theory—especially through the concepts of
Degeneracy of entire curves into higher dimensional complex manifolds
Pursuing McQuillan's philosophy in proving the Green-Griffiths conjecture for certain surfaces of general type, we deal with the algebraic degeneracy of entire curves tangent to holomorphic
On the hyperbolicity of general hypersurfaces
In 1970, Kobayashi conjectured that general hypersurfaces of sufficiently large degree in Pn$\mathbf {P}^{n}$ are hyperbolic. In this paper we prove that a general sufficiently ample hypersurface in
On the locus of higher order jets of entire curves in complex projective varieties
For a given complex projective variety, the existence of entire curves is strongly constrained by the positivity properties of the cotangent bundle. The Green-Griffiths-Lang conjecture stipulates
On Griffiths conjecture
By using techniques of holomorphic jets and Jacobian fields, we devise a non-equidistribution theory of holomorphic curves into complex projective varieties intersecting normal crossing divisors.

Non-Degeneracy of Kobayashi Volume Measures for Singular Directed Varieties
In this note, we prove the generic Kobayashi volume measure hyperbolicity of singular directed varieties $(X, V)$, as soon as the canonical sheaf $\mathcal{K}\_V$ of $V$ is big in the sense of
Brunella-Khanedani-Suwa variational residues for invariant currents
In this work we prove a Brunella-Khanedani-Suwa variational type residue theorem for currents invariant by holomorphic foliations. As a consequence, we give conditions for the leaves of a singular
Morse cohomology estimates for jet differential operators
We provide detailed holomorphic Morse estimates for the cohomology of sheaves of jet differentials and their dual sheaves. These estimates apply on arbitrary directed varieties, and a special
Algebraic degeneracy of holomorphic curves
We consider the algebraic degeneracy of holomorphic curves from a point of view of meromorphic vector fields. Employing the notion of Jocabian sections introduced by W. Stoll, we establish a Second


Holomorphic Morse Inequalities and the Green-Griffiths-Lang Conjecture
The goal of this work is to study the existence and properties of non constant entire curves f drawn in a complex irreducible n-dimensional variety X, and more specifically to show that they must
The exceptional set and the Green-Griffiths locus do not always coincide
We give a very simple criterion in order to ensure that the Green-Griffiths locus of a projective manifold is the whole manifold. Next, we use it to show that the Green-Griffiths locus of any
Algebraic criteria for Kobayashi hyperbolic projective varieties and jet differentials
These notes are an expanded version of lectures delivered at the AMS Summer School on Algebraic Geometry, held at Santa Cruz in July 1995. The main goal of the notes is to study complex varieties
Some recent transcendental techniques in algebraic and complex geometry
This article discusses the recent transcendental techniques used in the proofs of the following three conjectures. (1)~The plurigenera of a compact projective algebraic manifold are invariant under
Diophantine approximations and foliations
In this paper we indicate the proof of an effective version of the Green-Griffiths conjecture for surfaces of general type and positive second Segre class (i.e.c12>c2). Naturally this effective
Hyperbolicity in Complex Geometry
A complex manifold is said to be hyperbolic if there exists no nonconstant holomorphic map from the affine complex line to it. We discuss the techniques and methods for the hyperbolicity problems for

Abstract. In this paper we prove a conjectured height inequality of Lang and Vojta for holomorphic curves lying on generic hyperplane sections of 3-folds. As a consequence we deduce a conjecture of
Effective algebraic degeneracy
AbstractWe show that for every smooth projective hypersurface X⊂ℙn+1 of degree d and of arbitrary dimension n≥2, if X is generic, then there exists a proper algebraic subvariety Y⊊X such that every

In the three decades since the introduction of the Kobayashi distance, the subject of hyperbolic complex spaces and holomorphic mappings has grown to be a big industry. This book gives a
