Some Applications of Integral Formulas in Several Complex Variables
Doktorsavhandling, 1996

The thesis gives three examples of how integral formulas can be used in complex analysis. We say that a set S in Cn is quadratically convex if through any point in its complement there is a quadratic hypersurface that does not intersect S. A quadratically convex set is called strongly quadratically convex if a certain generalization of the Fantappie transform (related to the set) is surjective. In the first paper, we prove that certain sets are strongly quadratically convex, and use the Cauchy-Fantappie-Leray integral representation formula for holomorphic functions to obtain an explicit inversion formula for the related transform. Let D be a domain in Cn. Assume that the functions g1,...,gm are holomorphic and bounded in D, and that there is a constant .delta. such that 0<.delta.<=|g1|+...+|gm|. The Hp corona problem in D is the following: Given f in Hp(D), find ui in Hp(D) such that f=g1 u1+...+gm um. In the second paper, we use a weighted integral representation formula for holomorphic functions to solve this problem in the case where D is a non-degenerate analytic polyhedron. In the third paper, we study solution operators for the d-bar operator that are canonical with respect to a certain metric in strictly pseudoconvex domains. Some features of the metric and the canonical operators are investigated. We show that certain known explicit solution operators in a sense approximately are the canonical ones. This enables us to draw conclusions concerning e.g. regularity properties of the canonical operators.
