Invariant distances and metrics in complex analysis

  title={Invariant distances and metrics in complex analysis},
  author={Alexander V. Isaev and Steven G. Krantz},
C onstructing a distance that is invariant under a given class of mappings is one of the fundamental tools for the geometric approach in mathematics. The idea goes back to Klein and even to Riemann. In this article we will consider distances invariant under biholomorphic mappings of complex manifolds. There will be many such distances. A number of these will come from functions on the tangent spaces, in the way that a Riemannian metric on a manifold yields a distance on the manifold. Following…

Function theory on the Neil parabola
Distances on a complex spaceX that are invariant under biholomorphic maps have played an important role in the geometric approach to complex analysis. One of the oldest such distances is the the
Hyperbolic domains in real Euclidean spaces
The second named author and David Kalaj introduced a pseudometric on any domain in the real Euclidean space Rn, n ≥ 3, defined in terms of conformal harmonic discs, by analogy with Kobayashi’s
Let e T be a cross product of n Teichmüller spaces of Fuchsian groups, n > 1. From the properties of Kobayashi metric and from the Royden-Gardiner theorem, e T is a complete hyperbolic manifold. Each
Biholomorphic Transformations
This is a short overview for the beginners (graduate students and advanced undergraduates) on some aspects of biholomorphic maps. A mathematical theory identifies objects that are “similar in every
Narasimhan--Simha type metrics on strongly pseudoconvex domains in $\mathbb{C}^n$
Abstract. For a bounded domain D ⊂ C, let KD = KD(z) > 0 denote the Bergman kernel on the diagonal and consider the reproducing kernel Hilbert space of holomorphic functions on D that are square
Regularity of the Kobayashi and Carathéodory Metrics on Levi Pseudoconvex Domains
The Kobayashi or Kobayashi/Royden metric F K(z, ξ), and its companion the Carathéodory metric F C (z, ξ), has, in the past 40 years, proved to be an important tool in the study of function-theoretic
On a class of inner maps
— Let/ be a continuous map of the closure A of the open unit disc A of C into a unital associative Banach algebra A, whose restriction to A is holomorphic, and which satisfies the condition whereby 0
A Growth Theorem for Biholomorphic Mappings on a Banach Space
It is natural to consider a generalization of the growth theorem above to C. Let Ω be a domain in C which contains the origin in C. A holomorphic mapping f : Ω → C is said to be normalized, if f(0) =
D G ] 1 0 M ar 2 02 1 Hyperbolicity theory for minimal surfaces in Euclidean spaces
In this paper we obtain a sharp estimate on the norm of the differential of a harmonic map from the unit disc D in C into the unit ball Bn in Rn, n ≥ 2, at any point where the map is conformal. In
For domains in ℝn we construct the Bergman kernel on the diagonal using solutions of the Dirichlet problem. Starting from this, in a natural way we obtain an algebra 𝔸n of dimension n(n - 1)/2 + 1


On bounded analytic functions
The objective of this paper is to give an alternative derivation of results on bounded analytic functions recently obtained by Ahlfors [1] and Garabedian [2].1 While it is admitted that the main idea
