Kähler geometry of hyperbolic type on the manifold of nondegenerate m-pairs

Abstract

A nondegenerate m-pair (A, Ξ) in an n-dimensional projective space ℝP n consists of an m-plane A and an (n − m − 1)-plane Ξ in ℝP n , which do not intersect. The set \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) of all nondegenerate m-pairs ℝP n is a 2(n − m)(n − m − 1)-dimensional, real-complex manifold. The manifold \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) is the homogeneous space \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n = {{GL(n + 1,\mathbb{R})} \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {{GL(n + 1,\mathbb{R})} {GL(m + 1,\mathbb{R})}}} \right. \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} {GL(m + 1,\mathbb{R})}} \times GL(n - m,\mathbb{R})\) equipped with an internal Kähler structure of hyperbolic type. Therefore, the manifold \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) is a hyperbolic analogue of the complex Grassmanian ℂG m,n = U(n+1)/U(m+1) × U(n−m). In particular, the manifold of 0-pairs \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n {{GL(n + 1,\mathbb{R})} \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {{GL(n + 1,\mathbb{R})} {GL(1,\mathbb{R})}}} \right. \kern-\nulldelimiterspace} {GL(1,\mathbb{R})}} \times GL(n,\mathbb{R})\) is a hyperbolic analogue of the complex projective space ℂP n = U(n+1)/U(1) × U(n). Similarly to ℂP n , the manifold \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) is a Kähler manifold of constant nonzero holomorphic sectional curvature (relative to a hyperbolic metrics). In this sense, \(\mathfrak{N}_0^n \) is a hyperbolic spatial form. It was proved in [6] that the manifold of 0-pairs \(\mathfrak{N}_0^n \) is globally symplectomorphic to the total space T*ℝP n of the cotangent bundle over the projective space ℝP n . A generalization of this result (see [7]) is as follows: the manifold of nondegenerate m-pairs \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) is globally symplectomorphic to the total space T*ℝG m,n of the cotangent bundle over the Grassman manifold ℝG m,n of m-dimensional subspaces of the space ℝP n .

In this paper, we study the canonical Kähler structure on \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \). We describe two types of submanifolds in \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \), which are natural hyperbolic spatial forms holomorphically isometric to manifolds of 0-pairs in ℝP m +1 and in ℝP n−m , respectively. We prove that for any point of the manifold \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \), there exist a 2(n − m)-parameter family of 2(m + 1)-dimensional hyperbolic spatial forms of first type and a 2(m + 1)-parameter family of 2(n − m)-dimensional hyperbolic spatial forms of second type passing through this point. We also prove that natural hyperbolic spatial forms of first type on \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) are in bijective correspondence with points of the manifold \(\mathfrak{N}_{m + 1}^n \) and natural hyperbolic spatial forms of second type on \(\mathfrak{N}_m^n \) are in bijective correspondence with points of the manifolds \(\mathfrak{N}_{m + 1}^n \).
