   III. Subject and form of proposed joint work (a few phrases)



    We plan to continue our joint project. 
    We work together on minimal area problems in the complex domain
(also with Harold Shapiro from the Royal Institute of Technology,
Stockholm).
    A.Yu. Solynin visited Department of mathematics at the Technion
Haifa(twice) and we are in the process of writing two papers on the
subject. In particular we have solved a long standing open problem in this
area of research.
    Professor Aharonov also plans to meet some other mathematicians from
POMI and University of St.Petersburg. He is an author of the journal
"Algebra i Analiz".
   
    IV. Desired duration:
two weeks in the period between 24/July/98 till
15/8/98(most likely,from 28/7/98 till 11/8/98).
