### weak convergence of positive currents vs. $L^1$ convergence of normalized potentials

I have run into the following statement in the literature (e.g. here, p.5, after Theorem 1.1): that weak convergence of positive $(1,1)$-currents on a complex manifold is equivalent to $L^1$ (I ...

### Closed analytic subvariety of $\mathbb C^n$ not defined by global holomorphic functions

Here is the motivation of this question: $\mathbb C^n$ is already "local" in algebraic category. In other words, algebraic subvarieties of $\mathbb C^n$ are affine, so they are common zero locus of ...

### Holonomy groups of Hermitian, and hyper-Hermitian, manifolds

An $n$-dimensional complex manifold $M$, endowed with an Hermitian metric $g$, is Kähler if and only if the holonomy group of $g$ is contained in $U(n)$. If $g$ is Hermitian but not Kähler do we ...
