DESCRIPTION:Abstract: A classic result in complex analysis states that a co
ntinuous function which is holomorphic everywhere except a point is holomo
rphic everywhere on its domain; we thus say that points are “removable” f
or continuous functions. A vast generalization of this question asks what
sets are removable for arbitrary classes of functions. While fundamental r
esults in this direction are due to Painlevé, for some seemingly simple c
lasses of functions the problem took over a century to be resolved, in pa
rt because of the need geometric measure theory. In this talk I will explo
re the history of this problem, and introduce some basic measure-theoreti
c tools for framing these kinds of questions. \n\n
