We study representations of lattices of $\mathrm{PU}(m,1)$ into $\mathrm{PU}(n,1)$. We show that if a representation is reductive and if $m$ is at least 2, then there exists a finite energy harmonic equivariant map from complex hyperbolic $m$-space to complex hyperbolic $n$-space. This allows us to give a differential geometric proof of rigidity results obtained by M. Burger and A. Iozzi. We also define a new invariant associated to representations into $\mathrm{PU}(n,1)$ of non-uniform lattices in $\mathrm{PU}(1,1)$, and more generally of fundamental groups of orientable...

Let $X$ be a compact Kähler manifold and $\Delta $ be a $\mathbb{R}$-divisor with simple normal crossing support and coefficients between $1/2$ and $1$. Assuming that ${K}_{X}+\Delta $ is ample, we prove the existence and uniqueness of a negatively curved Kahler-Einstein metric on $X\setminus \mathrm{Supp}\left(\Delta \right)$ having mixed Poincaré and cone singularities according to the coefficients of $\Delta $. As an application we prove a vanishing theorem for certain holomorphic tensor fields attached to the pair $(X,\Delta )$.

We prove the existence of non-positively curved Kähler-Einstein metrics with cone singularities along a given simple normal crossing divisor of a compact Kähler manifold, under a technical condition on the cone angles, and we also discuss the case of positively-curved Kähler-Einstein metrics with cone singularities. As an application we extend to this setting classical results of Lichnerowicz and Kobayashi on the parallelism and vanishing of appropriate holomorphic tensor fields.
