Locally conformal symplectic structures on Lie algebras of type I and their solvmanifoldsAug 09 2018We study Lie algebras of type I, that is, a Lie algebra $\g$ where all the eigenvalues of the operator $\ad_X$ are imaginary for all $X\in\g$. We prove that the Morse-Novikov cohomology of a Lie algebra of type I is trivial for any closed $1$-form. We ... More
A constraint on Chern classes of strictly pseudoconvex CR manifoldsAug 07 2018This short note gives a constraint on Chern classes of closed strictly pseudoconvex CR manifolds (or equivalently, closed holomorphically fillable contact manifolds) of dimension at least five.
