Comparison of de Rham and Dolbeault cohomology for proper surjective mappings

Raymond O’Neil Wells, Jr

Vol. 53 (1974), No. 1, 281–300
Abstract

In this paper it is shown that if π : X X is a proper holomorphic surjection of equidimensional complex manifolds then the induced mapping π;Hq(X,ΩXp) Hq(X,ΩXp) on Dolbeault groups is injective. As a consequence one obtains the inequality hp,q(X) hp,q(X) for the Hodge numbers of X and X. This result is valid also in the case of vector bundle coefficients, and can be generalized to the case of nondiscrete fibres of the mapping π (non equidimensional case) by the imposition of a Kählerian condition on X. Corresponding results for differentiable mappings are formulated and proved. Illustrative examples are provided to show the necessity of the various assumptions made.
