Projective structures, neighborhoods of rational curves and Painlev'e equations

  title={Projective structures, neighborhoods of rational curves and Painlev'e equations},
  author={M. F. Luza and F. Loray},
We investigate the duality between local (complex analytic) projective structures on surfaces and two dimensional (complex analytic) neighborhoods of rational curves having self-intersection +1. We study the analytic classification, existence of normal forms, pencil/fibration decomposition, infinitesimal symmetries. We deduce some transcendental result about Painlevé equations. Part of the results were announced in [20]; an extended version is available in [21].

We prove that there is a correspondence between projective structures defined by torsion-free connections with skew-symmetric Ricci tensor and Veronese webs on a plane. The correspondence is used toExpand
