In several complex variables , to determine the pseudoconvexity of a domain in $C^n$ is very important . There are various criterion to decide whether a domain is pseudoconvex . In particular ,if the domain is defined by a $C^\infty$ defining function $\phi>0$ , then 'Levi pseudoconvex ' is equivalent to the following matrix (which is called 'Monge-Ampere matrix') $$ \begin{pmatrix} -\phi & -\partial_\bar{k}\phi \\ -\partial_j\phi & -\partial_{j\bar{k}}^2\phi \end{pmatrix} $$ have precise one negative eigenvalue and n positive eigenvalues .

So my question is how to prove this ? Anybody knows? Thanks very much!
