Kähler manifolds with Ricci curvature lower bound

Pages: 69 – 100



Gang Liu (Department of Mathematics, University of California at Berkeley)


On Kähler manifolds with Ricci curvature bounded from below, we establish some theorems which are counterparts of some classical theorems in Riemannian geometry, for example, Bishop-Gromov’s relative volume comparison, Bonnet-Meyers theorem, and Yau’s gradient estimate for positive harmonic functions. The tool is a Bochner type formula reflecting the Kähler structure.
