### 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 ...

### Affine (or Stein) tubular neighbourhood theorem

Fix an embedding $X\subset Y$ of smooth complex affine varieties, or Stein manifolds. I would guess that in general there is no analytic neighbourhood $X\subset U\subset Y$ with a holomorphic ...

### example of noncompact kahler manifold which is not modification of Stein manifold

It is obvious that every Stein manifold is Kahler. But the gap between these two can be quite huge. If the Kahler manifold contains compact complex submanifolds of positive dimension, it cannot be ...

### 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 ...

### The state of art of the singular Levi problem — and hyperkähler quotients

One of the versions of the classical Levi problem asks the following: Let $X$ be a complex manifold. Is it true that $X$ is Stein iff $X$ admits a smooth exhaustion strictly plurisubharmonic ...

### $T^*M$ is a Stein manifold: A clarification on the integral complex structure involved and its relation with the canonical symplectic form

I'm interested in understanding better the properties of the integrable (almost) complex structure that Eliashberg constructs on the cotangent bundle of a closed manifold $M$, whose dimension is at ...

### Dense Stein subset in complex manifold

Let $X$ be a smooth proper algebraic variety. Then $X$ has a dense affine open subset. In particular, any smooth proper algebraic variety has a dense Stein open subset as the complement of a divisor. ...

### Contact 3-manifolds with hyperkahler Stein fillings?

Is there any classification result on (homeomorphism type) of contact 3-manifolds $\Sigma$ that have Stein filling $W$ that is 1. Hyperkahler (s.t. Stein structure is the Kahler part of it) 2. not ...

### Smoothings over a real interval

I am asking if somebody knows if the following kind of objects are studied somewhere or if there is some kind of obvious obstruction for them to appear. Let $(X,0) \subset \mathbb{C}^n$ be a germ of ...

### Extension of holomorphic function on family of relatively compact strictly pseudoconvex domains

Let $Y \to M$ be a (proper and locally trivial) family of relatively compact strictly pseudoconvex domains which are smooth (not neccesarily Stein spaces). So $Y$ and $M$ are a complex manifold and ...

### Cotangent bundle of coadjoint orbit is stein manifold?

Let me first define stein manifolds and coadjoint orbits. A complex manifold $X$ of complex dimension $n$ is called a Stein manifold if the following conditions hold: $X$ is holomorphically convex, ...

### Plurisubharmonic exhaustion functions without critical points at infinity

A complex manifold $X$ is said to be weakly pseudoconvex if there exists on $X$ a smooth plurisubharmonic exhaustion function $\psi$. For example, Stein manifolds are weakly pseudoconvex (in this ...

### Stein manifolds isomorphic at infinity

Suppose $M$ and $N$ are two Stein manifolds of dimension at least $3$ with compact subsets $U$ and $V$ such that $M\setminus U$ is biholomorphic to $N \setminus V$. It it true that $M$ is ...
