You may try to reach me
via telephone (040) 42838

However,
I
will not be present in my office regularly. Therefore, it
is more advisable to contact me by email.
The FAX number of my group is (040) 42838  5190
By personal
arrangement via email only (preferred time: prior to the
tea before our Colloquium on Tuesdays).
in particular: complexanalytic
and complexalgebraic geometry and especially
singularities .
In the next few months I shall attach here some partially incomplete chapters
of a quite old singularity project.

In a Prospective
Preface you find a tentative list of contents
for the complete text in preparation.
In order to get a satisfactory print out
of 2 pages on one sheet of paper one should use the
option in Adobe
of adding an extra page at the beginning.

For German reading persons,
there are two other texts:
6. a German
version of 4. (see also text of the 2016
paper)
7. an elementary introduction to group theory and
mathematical puzzles
for highschool students
8. an
extremely elementary text on the arabic
story concerning the inheritance of camels

If you are interested, you may
find here a biography of Tilman Riemenschneider (more detailed information is
given in the German edition),
his selfportrait and one of his works . Please also contact the
Mainfränkisches Museum in Würzburg. 
My own "creations" in pictorial arts were always rather abstract
culminating
in sketches like
the divisor with normal crossings à la Mirò.
On the cover photo I am playing a piece
of Johann Sebastian Bach at the "Riemenhaus"
in
Here is an older
one showing me (in 1963, when I was a student
in Göttingen) hiking
on the peninsula of Athos.
The next photo was taken (in a similar
style of almost all participants) at the occasion of the
75th birthday of Professor Kneser in Göttingen
in the Auditorium Maximum of the Mathematisches
Institut. It imitades a well known photo of David
Hilbert showing him exactly at the same place
when delivering a lecture with one of his printed papers
in his hand.
On October 29, 2016, there has been a small ceremony
in the same lecture hall in memory of the "Goldenes
Doktorjubiläum" of a few persons.
This and the
next photo were shot after the day
of a typhoon at a famous shrine (Dazaifu) south of Fukuoka
in the 1990's
during one of my several visits to Japan with my wife
Kyoko.
In 2016 we have been in October on Mt.
Rokko, at some waterfalls near Kagoshima
and hiking again in the hills near Fukuoka.
Here are some photos from our last stay from October to
November 2017.
Near Fukuoka, we visited this time the hometown of the
famous Japanese Composer Rentaro
Taki, and I performed his piece
Kojo
no tsuki (moon over the ruined castle) at his statue
on the ruins of Oka
castle.
During a conference in Kagoshima we could marvel again at
the smoking Mt.
Sakurajima and the beginning of
autumnal tints at Lake
Rokukannonmiike.
I attach here
from time to time just a few of my own favourite
personal photos.
