Jean-Claude Sikorav

Jean-Claude Sikorav (born 21 June 1957) is a French mathematician. He is professor at the École normale supérieure de Lyon. He is specialized in symplectic geometry.

Main contributions

Sikorav is known for his proof, joint with François Laudenbach, of the Arnold conjecture for Lagrangian intersections in cotangent bundles, as well as for introducing generating families in symplectic topology.

Selected publications

Sikorav is one of fifteen members of a group of mathematicians who published the book Uniformisation des surfaces de Riemann under the pseudonym of Henri Paul de Saint-Gervais.

He has written the survey

  • Sikorav, Jean-Claude (1994), "Some properties of holomorphic curves in almost complex manifolds", Holomorphic curves in symplectic geometry, Progress in Mathematics, 117, Basel: Birkhäuser, pp. 165–189, MR 1274929.
