# Bounding the rank of Hermitian forms and rigidity for CR mappings of hyperquadrics

@article{Grundmeier2014BoundingTR, title={Bounding the rank of Hermitian forms and rigidity for CR mappings of hyperquadrics}, author={Dusty E. Grundmeier and Jiř{\'i} Lebl and Liz Raquel Vivas}, journal={Mathematische Annalen}, year={2014}, volume={358}, pages={1059-1089} }

Using Green’s hyperplane restriction theorem, we prove that the rank of a Hermitian form on the space of holomorphic polynomials is bounded by a constant depending only on the maximum rank of the form restricted to affine manifolds. As an application we prove a rigidity theorem for CR mappings between hyperquadrics in the spirit of the results of Baouendi–Huang and Baouendi–Ebenfelt–Huang. Given a real-analytic CR mapping of a hyperquadric (not equivalent to a sphere) to another hyperquadric…
