Pseudo-Einstein CR-structures on real hypersurfaces in a complex space form.

Hokkaido Mathematical Journal, 37 (2008) pp.1-17




We introduce the pseudo-Einstein structure on real hypersurfaces in a K\"ahlerian manifold, namely, the Ricci curvature tensor for the generalized Tanaka-Webster connection (restricted) on the Levi subbundle $D$ is proportional to the Levi form. In particular, we give a classification of pseudo-Einstein Hopf-hypersurfaces in a non-flat complex space form.
