Tuboids are tube-like domains which have a totally real edge and look asymptotically near the edge as a local tube over a convex cone. For such domains we state an analogue of Cartan’s theorem on the holomorphic convexity of totally real domains in ${\mathbb{R}}^{n}\subset {\u2102}^{n}$.

The Fefferman construction associates to a manifold carrying a CR–structure a conformal structure on a sphere bundle over the manifold. There are some analogs to this construction, with one giving a Lie contact structure, a refinement of the contact bundle on the bundle of rays in the cotangent bundle of a manifold with a conformal metric. Since these structures are parabolic geometries, these constructions can be dealt with in this setting.

Let $M$ be a two dimensional totally real submanifold of class ${C}^{2}$ in ${\mathbf{C}}^{2}$. A continuous map $F:\stackrel{\u203e}{\Delta}\to {\mathbf{C}}^{2}$ of the closed unit disk $\stackrel{\u203e}{\Delta}\subset \mathbf{C}$ into ${\mathbf{C}}^{2}$ that is holomorphic on the open disk $\Delta $ and maps its boundary $b\Delta $ into $M$ is called an analytic disk with boundary in $M$. Given an initial immersed analytic disk ${F}^{0}$ with boundary in $M$, we describe the existence and behavior of analytic disks near ${F}^{0}$ with boundaries in small perturbations of $M$ in terms of the homology class of the closed curve ${F}^{0}\left(b\Delta \right)$ in $M$. We also prove a regularity theorem...

Let $D\subset \subset {\u2102}^{n},n\ge 2$, be a domain with ${C}^{2}$-boundary and $K\subset \partial D$ be a compact set such that $\partial D\setminus K$ is connected. We study univalent analytic extension of CR-functions from $\partial D\setminus K$ to parts of $D$. Call $K$ CR-convex if its $A\left(D\right)$-convex hull, $A\left(D\right)-\mathrm{hull}\left(K\right)$, satisfies $K=\partial D\cap A\left(D\right)-\mathrm{hull}\left(K\right)$ ($A\left(D\right)$ denoting the space of functions, which are holomorphic on $D$ and continuous up to $\partial D$). The main theorem of the paper gives analytic extension to $\partial D\setminus A\left(D\right)-\mathrm{hull}\left(K\right)$, if $K$ is CR- convex.

Let $\Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}}^{2}$ be a bounded, convex and open set with real analytic boundary. Let ${T}_{\Omega}\subset {\u2102}^{2}$ be the tube with base $\Omega ,$ and let $\mathcal{B}$ be the Bergman kernel of ${T}_{\Omega}$. If $\Omega $ is strongly convex, then $\mathcal{B}$ is analytic away from the boundary diagonal. In the weakly convex case this is no longer true. In this situation, we relate the off diagonal points where analyticity fails to the Trèves curves. These curves are symplectic invariants which are determined by the CR structure of the boundary of ${T}_{\Omega}$. Note that Trèves curves exist only...

We propose a definition for analytic torsion of the contact complex on contact manifolds. We show it coincides with Ray–Singer torsion on any $3$-dimensional CR Seifert manifold equipped with a unitary representation. In this particular case we compute it and relate it to dynamical properties of the Reeb flow. In fact the whole spectral torsion function we consider may be interpreted on CR Seifert manifolds as a purely dynamical function through Selberg-like trace formulae, that hold also in variable...
