How do we calculate the Euler numbers of this

Suppose we are given two cubics X(a) and Y(a) in $CP^2$; $X(a)={ (4-a^3) xyz-a^3(x^3+y^3+z^3) =0 }$ $Y(a)={ a(x^3+y^3+z^3)-(2+a^3)xyz =0 }$ where a is a parameter in C satisfying $a^3 \not=1$ and ...

Proving that Hermitian Metric yields Hermitian Structure on Complex Manifold

Let $g$ be a Riemannian metric on an almost complex manifold $(M,J)$. Suppose $g$ is Hermitian in the sense that $$g(JX,JY) = g(X,Y)$$ Let $\Omega$ be the associated fundamental (Kahler) form ...

The zero set of $z_0^2+z_1^2-1$ in $\mathbb{C}^2$.

Recently, I read the notes "Vector bundles on Riemann surfaces" by Sabin Cautis (http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~cautis/classes/notes-bundles.pdf). On the sixth page of these notes, there is a statement ...

Torus biholomorphic to smooth cubic curve?

I am trying to understand that all compact genus 1 Riemann surfaces are biholomorphic to a smooth cubic curve. ( assuming that $\dim H^{1,0} = \dim H^{0,1} = \frac{1}{2} \dim H^1$ ) I think I ...

Some questions about $S^n$

I have some questions about the $n$-sphere: I know that for $n=0,1,3$, $S^n$ forms a Lie group and I also know why it's true, but why is it not the case for other $n$? I have the same question for ...

Is there any holomorphic version of the tubular neighborhood theorem?

This question arised when I was studying Beauville's book 'Complex Algebraic Surfaces'. Castelnuovo's theorem says that a smooth rational curve $E$ on an algebraic surface $S$ is an exceptional ...

Complex structure on the product of two complex Kaehler manifolds

I have the following question: Let $(M,J_{M}, \omega_{M})$ and $(N,J_{N}, \omega_{N})$ be two Kaehler manifolds. I consider $M \times N$. Can I introduce on $M \times N$ a complex structure ? I think ...

cotangent bundle splits as a product?

Let $M$ and $N$ be two Riemannian manifolds with Riemannian metrics $g$, $h$ respectively. We consider the product $M \times N$ with metric $g \oplus h$. By the metric we get an isomorphism of bundles ...

volume form on a Riemann Surface

Suppose I have a Riemann Surface (i.e. an oriented manifold) and I have an integral that uses the volume density $|dx|$ instead of the volume form $dx = dx_1dx_2$ (here the $(x_1,x_2)$ are local real ...

Complex manifolds without compact submanifolds

It is well known that $\mathbb{C}^n$ does not admit any compact complex submanifold, I was wondering if this can happen for compact manifolds, i.e., does there exist an example of compact complex ...
