CR-invariants and the scattering operator for complex manifolds with boundary

Peter D. Hislop, Peter A. Perry and Siu-Hung Tang

Vol. 1 (2008), No. 2, 197–227
Abstract

Suppose that M is a strictly pseudoconvex CR manifold bounding a compact complex manifold X of complex dimension m. Under appropriate geometric conditions on M, the manifold X admits an approximate Kähler–Einstein metric g which makes the interior of X a complete Riemannian manifold. We identify certain residues of the scattering operator on X as conformally covariant differential operators on M and obtain the CR Q-curvature of M from the scattering operator as well. In order to construct the Kähler–Einstein metric on X, we construct a global approximate solution of the complex Monge–Ampère equation on X, using Fefferman’s local construction for pseudoconvex domains in m. Our results for the scattering operator on a CR-manifold are the analogue in CR-geometry of Graham and Zworski’s result on the scattering operator on a real conformal manifold.
