Generalized holomorphic Cartan geometries

  title={Generalized holomorphic Cartan geometries},
  author={Indranil Biswas and Sorin Dumitrescu},
  journal={European Journal of Mathematics},
This is largely a survey paper, dealing with Cartan geometries in the complex analytic category. We first remind some standard facts going back to the seminal works of Felix Klein, Élie Cartan and Charles Ehresmann. Then we present the concept of a branched holomorphic Cartan geometry which was introduced by Biswas and Dumitrescu (Int Math Res Not IMRN, 2017., arxiv:1706.04407). It generalizes to higher dimension the notion of a branched (flat) complex… 

Logarithmic Cartan geometry on complex manifolds


International audience We show that compact complex manifolds of algebraic dimension zero bearing a holomorphic Cartan geometry of algebraic type have infinite fundamental group. This generalizes

Deformation theory of holomorphic Cartan geometries, II

Abstract In this continuation of [4], we investigate the deformations of holomorphic Cartan geometries where the underlying complex manifold is allowed to move. The space of infinitesimal

Holomorphic G-Structures and Foliated Cartan Geometries on Compact Complex Manifolds

This is a survey paper dealing with holomorphic G-structures and holomorphic Cartan geometries on compact complex manifolds. Our emphasis is on the foliated case: holomorphic foliations with

Holomorphic Bundles Trivializable by Proper Surjective Holomorphic Map

Given a compact complex manifold $M$, we investigate the holomorphic vector bundles $E$ on $M$ such that $\varphi^* E$ is trivial for some surjective holomorphic map $\varphi$, to $M$, from some

Stability and holomorphic connections on vector bundles over LVMB manifolds

We characterize all LVMB manifolds X such that the holomorphic tangent bundle TX is spanned at the generic point by a family of global holomorphic vector fields, each of them having non-empty zero

Branched holomorphic Cartan geometries and Calabi-Yau manifolds

We introduce the concept of a branched holomorphic Cartan geometry. It generalizes to higher dimension the definition of branched (flat) complex projective structure on a Riemann surface introduced

Constructing variations of Hodge structure using Yang-Mills theory and applications to uniformization

The fundamental group is one of the most basic topological invariants of a space. The aim of this paper is to present a method of constructing representations of fundamental groups in complex

On Uniformization of Complex Manifolds: The Role of Connections

The classical uniformization theorem for Riemann surfaces and its recent extensions can be viewed as introducing special pseudogroup structures, affine or projective structures, on higher-dimensional complex manifolds, modeled on the theory as developed for R Siemann surfaces.

Branched structures on Riemann surfaces

Following results of Gunning on geometric realizations of projective structures on Riemann surfaces, we investigate more fully certain generalizations of such structures. We define the notion of a

Complex analytic connections in fibre bundles

Introduction. In the theory of differentiable fibre bundles, with a Lie group as structure group, the notion of a connection plays an important role. In this paper we shall consider complex analytic

Global rigidity of holomorphic Riemannian metrics on compact complex 3-manifolds

We study compact complex 3-manifolds M admitting a (locally homogeneous) holomorphic Riemannian metric g. We prove the following: (i) If the Killing Lie algebra of g has a non trivial semi-simple

On The Ricci Curvature of a Compact Kahler Manifold and the Complex Monge-Ampere Equation, I*

Therefore a necessary condition for a (1,l) form ( G I a ' r r ) I,,, Rlr dz' A d? to be the Ricci form of some Kahler metric is that it must be closed and its cohomology class must represent the

On the relations between branched structures and affine and projective bundles on Riemann surfaces

A classification for analytic branched G-structures on a Riemann surface M is provided by means of a map (G into the moduli spaces of flat G-bundles on M. (G = GA(1, C) or PL(1, C).) Conditions are
