Boundary values of plurisubharmonic functions and related topics
2009 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This thesis consists of three papers concerning problems related to plurisubharmonic functions on bounded hyperconvex domains, in particular boundary values of such functions. The papers summarized in this thesis are:* Paper I Urban Cegrell and Berit Kemppe, Monge-Ampère boundary measures, Ann. Polon. Math. 96 (2009), 175-196.* Paper II Berit Kemppe, An ordering of measures induced by plurisubharmonic functions, manuscript (2009).* Paper III Berit Kemppe, On boundary values of plurisubharmonic functions, manuscript (2009).In the first paper we study a procedure for sweeping out Monge-Ampère measures to the boundary of the domain. The boundary measures thus obtained generalize measures studied by Demailly. A number of properties of the boundary measures are proved, and we describe how boundary values of bounded plurisubharmonic functions can be associated to the boundary measures.In the second paper, we study an ordering of measures induced by plurisubharmonic functions. This ordering arises naturally in connection with problems related to negative plurisubharmonic functions. We study maximality with respect to the ordering and a related notion of minimality for certain plurisubharmonic functions. The ordering is then applied to problems of weak*-convergence of measures, in particular Monge-Ampère measures.In the third paper we continue the work on boundary values in a more general setting than in Paper I. We approximate measures living on the boundary with measures on the interior of the domain, and present conditions on the approximation which makes the procedure suitable for defining boundary values of certain plurisubharmonic functions.
