Abstract. Every bounded pseudoconvex domain in CnCn has a natural complete metric: the Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau. When the boundary of the domain is strongly pseudoconvex, Cheng-Yau showed that the holomorphic sectional curvature of this metric is asymptotically a negative constant. In this talk I will describe some converses to this result, including the following: if a smoothly bounded convex domain has a complete Kaehler metric with close to constant negative holomorphic sectional curvature near the boundary, then the domain is strongly pseudoconvex.
This is joint work with F. Bracci and H. Gaussier.
