Hermitian metric with constant holomorphic sectional curvature on convex domains


Dr. W.S. Cheung

The University of Hong Kong



In 1966, K.H. Look showed that if W is a bounded domain in Image26on which the Bergman metric is complete with constant negative holomorphic sectional curvature, then W is biholomorphic to the euclidean ball.

An open problem in complex differential geometry is to ask to what extent one can relax the Kähler condition in Look’s theorem, or more generally, to try and characterize complete hermitian manifolds with constant negative holomorphic sectional curvature. In this talk, some partical results of this problem will be presented.
