Hallo,

I am reading the paper "Hyperkaehler structures on the total space of holomorphic cotangent bundles" by D.Kaledin and I am asking if it is possible to embedd a real-analytic Kähler manifold, isometrically, as a special Lagrangian in a Calabi-Yau manifold. Acctualy what I am looking for is the following: Start with a compact real-analytic Kähler manifold $(M, I, \omega)$ and in a neigbourhood of the zero-section in the cotangent bundle $T^{*}M$ there should exists a holomorphic $(n,0)-$form $\Omega$ (with respect to some complex structure on this neigbourhood) and a Kaehler form $\tilde{\omega}$ such that the forms $Im(\Omega)$ and $\tilde{\omega}$ vanishes when restricted to $M$ (the zero section) and $\tilde{\omega}^{2n} = C_{n} \Omega \wedge \bar{\Omega}$ for some constant $C_{n}$ that depends only on $n$. I know that one can do this. But I don't know some references where I can find a explanation of this. Is it sufficient just to read the paper of Kaledin or do I have also to switch to other references? By using Kaledin's paper what ingredients are necessary for a proof of this embedding problem? I am a beginner in Calabi-Yau manifolds and Hyperkaeler manifolds and I would be very thankfull if someone has the answers. I hope for a lot of replys and also hope that this question is not too trivial.

Best Regards, Pavel

isometricembedding of the given Kähler manifold as a special Lagrangian in a Calabi-Yau manifold, but you don't mention this requirement in the text. I'll just point out that the induced metric on any special Lagrangian submanifold of a Calabi-Yau manifold is necessarily real-analytic, so it follows that it isnotpossible, in general toisometricallyembed a given Kähler manifold as a special Lagrangian in some Calabi-Yau manifold. $\endgroup$ – Robert Bryant Oct 20 '12 at 22:19
