### 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 ...

### How to compute singular homologies of affine hypersurface in $A^4$ [closed]

I was trying to compute singular homology in integer coefficient of the hypersurface $t^2-1=z^{n}+x(xy-1)$ contained in $A^4$. Can anyone help me computing that? Can anyone tell me some reference ...

### How to get a Stein space which has homotopy type of suspension of another Stein space

Let $V^n$ be a Stein space(or Stein manifold) in $\mathbb{C}^N$. I want to construct a Stein space(or Stein manifold) $W^{n+1}$ such that $H_i(V;\mathbb{Z})=H_{i+1}(W; \mathbb{Z}).$ If we take the ...

### 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 ...

### 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 ...

### Stein manifolds definiton

There are a few equivalent definitions of Stein manifolds. As far as I know they were initially defined as holomorphically convex complex manifolds, and then the other definitions (e.g. complex ...

### Question about an estimate in Hörmander's proof of Cartan's Theorem B

I have been working through the proof of Cartan's Theorem B that Hörmander gives in his book 'Introduction to Complex Analysis in Several Variables'. When I began, I skipped over some of the initial ...
