Szego kernel asymptotics and Morse inequalities on CR manifolds
Journal article, 2012
Let X be an abstract compact orientable CR manifold of dimension 2n-1, n >= 2, and let L-k be the k-th tensor power of a CR complex line bundle L over X. We assume that condition Y (q) holds at each point of X. In this paper we obtain a scaling upper-bound for the Szego kernel on (0, q)-forms with values in L-k, for large k. After integration, this gives weak Morse inequalities, analogues of the holomorphic Morse inequalities of Demailly. By a refined spectral analysis we obtain also strong Morse inequalities. We apply the strong Morse inequalities to the embedding of some convex-concave manifolds.
