Stein manifold homotopic to wedge of two Stein manifolds

I am not very conversant with Stein structure on a manifold so this may be a very silly question. Let $X$ and $Y$ be two Stein manifolds of dimension $n$, inside $\mathbb{C}^N$. Take $x\in X$ and $y\...

Milnor fibration and Runge pair

Let $f:\mathbb{A}^3\to \mathbb{A}^1$ be a polynomial map. Let $0\in \mathbb{A}^1$ be critical value. If $c \in \mathbb{A}^1$ is very close to zero (c is a regular value), then for Milnor fibration we ...

holomorphic functions on Stein manifolds reaching maxima in a given point on the boundary (Shilov boundary)

Let $M$ be a Stein manifold with smooth, strictly pseudoconvex boundary, and $x$ a point on its boundary. Is there a holomorphic function $f$ on $M$, smooth on the boundary, with strict maximum of $|f|...

Connectedness of boundary of a Stein domain

Let $Y$ be a Stein manifold and $D\subset\subset Y$ be a Stein domain. I think $\overline D$ has connected boundary, and it should be somewhere, but I cannot find a reference for this. Thanks

Regular exposable points on the boundary of compacts in Stein manifolds

Given a Stein manifold $Y$, there exists $\rho$, a $\mathscr C^2$-smooth strictly plurisubharmonic exhausting function for $Y$, such that the set of critical points $C=\{z\in Y\;:\;d\rho(z)=0\}$ is ...

Artin vanishing for Stein manifolds and restriction maps

In the setting of complex Stein manifolds $X$ of complex dimension $d$, the theorem of Andreotti--Frankel implies the vanishing of the singular cohomology group $H^i(X,\mathbb Z)=0$ for $i>d$. With ...

Cotangent bundles of surfaces as varieties

As far as I understand, it is easy to see (and find in the literature) that the affine variety $$z_1^2+z_2^2+z_3^2=1$$ with the restriction of the standard $\omega_{std}$ of $\mathbb{C}^3$ is ...

Triviality of holomorphic vector bundles over $\mathbb{C}$

Let $E\longrightarrow\mathbb{C}$ be a holomorphic vector bundle. I found two proofs that $E$ is trivial: one follows from Oka-Grauer principle (Theorem 5.3.1 in F. Forstneric, Stein Manifolds and ...
