The Bergman kernel of fat Hartogs triangles
Edholm, Luke David

2016, Doctor of Philosophy, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
My research is concerned with Bergman theory, both as a tool to answer deep questions in Several Complex Variables, and an object of study in its own right. Much of my research has involved an infinite family of domains in C^2 which I call generalized Hartogs triangles. These are bounded, pseudoconvex domains with a specific type of boundary singularity generalizing the classical Hartogs triangle. The boundaries of these domains are responsible for new function theoretic behavior.

I compute a closed form expression for the Bergman kernel for all generalized Hartogs triangles with a rational exponent gamma. In each case, the kernel is given by an explicit rational function. Underlying this computation is the observation that the Bergman space admits an essential decomposition into a finite number of subspaces. With this decomposition, I am able to study the action of the Bergman projection on L^p-spaces associated to these domains. When gamma is rational, there is a restricted non-trivial interval of p values for which the Bergman projection is a bounded operator on L^p. However, when gamma is irrational, the Bergman projection is shown to be bounded if and only if p=2.
