When is a coherent sheaf on an algebraizable space algebraizable?

Let $\mathcal{X}$ denote an algebraizable rigid analytic space over $\text{Spm}(\mathbb{Q}_p)$, i.e. there exists a finite type $\mathbb{Q}_p$-scheme $X$ such that $\mathcal{X}$ is its rigid ...

GAGA, positive line bundles, Kodaira embedding, and homogeneous coordinate rings

Let $M$ be a compact K"ahler manifold and let $L$ be a positive line bundle over $M$. We know from the Kodaira embedding theorem that from $L^{\otimes k}$ for some $k$ we can construct an ...

The notion of border for (complex and non-archimedean) analytic spaces and schemes

Is a manifold with corner an analytic space (just show that $\left[0, +\infty \right)^{n}$ is an analytic space, which seems obvious but maybe I'm wrong...) EDIT: as noted in the comments some complex ...

Decomposability and analytification of coherent sheaves

Let $X$ be an affine (algebraic) complex variety and $f:Y \to X$ be a finite morphism. Given any coherent sheaf $\mathcal{F}$ on $X$, we denote by $\mathcal{F}^{an}$ the analytification of $\mathcal{F}...

GAGA for vector bundles over Riemann surfaces

Serre’s GAGA theorem gives an equivalence of categories between algebraic and analytic coherent sheaves over a complex projective variety. The proof relies on the finiteness of the cohomologies of ...

Kaehler analogue of very ample line bundle

In the correspondence between projective and Kaehler geometry an ample line bundle corresponds to a positive line bundle, where the latter requires that the curvature of the Chern connection is a ...

Algebrizing analytic quotients of algebraic spaces

Suppose that $Y$ is an algebraic space over $\mathbb{C}$ which is "nice" (say, separated and of finite type). Let $R\subset Y\times Y$ be a closed algebraic subspace which forms a categorical ...

Comparison of algebraic and analytic q-expansion

I would like to check that algebraic and analytic q-expansion of a modular form coincide. I'm thinking about modular forms as global sections of some sheaf on modular curves. If $X$ is a modular ...

Does the cohomology comparison part of GAGA hold over the reals?

If $k=\mathbb{C}$, $X$ is a projective (or even proper) scheme over $k$ and $F$ a coherent sheaf on $X$, then there is an isomorphism $$ H^p(X,F)\rightarrow H^p(X^{an}, F^{an}) $$ (and there is also ...

Are complex varieties Kahler? - Algebraic, non-projective complex manifolds

Let $X/\mathbb{C}$ a nonsingular proper variety and $X_{an}$ it's associated analytic space. Is $X_{an}$ necessarily Kahler? Certainly we know this if $X$ is projective. A complex torus is algebraic ...

What is the intuition behind the proof of the algebraic version of Cartan's theorem A?

I am trying to understand the idea behind the proof of GAGA. A crucial step is the following: Theorem: Let $X=\mathbb{P}^r_{\mathbb{C}}$ (either as a variety or as an analytic space), and let $\...
