Volume Growth and Curvature Decay of Positively Curved Kahler Manifolds

Bing-Long Chen, Xi-Ping Zhu
2005 Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly  
In this paper we obtain three results concerning the geometry of complete noncompact positively curved Kähler manifolds at infinity. The first one states that the order of volume growth of a complete noncompact Kähler manifold with positive bisectional curvature is at least half of the real dimension (i.e., the complex dimension). The second one states that the curvature of a complete noncompact Kähler manifold with positive bisectional curvature decays at least linearly in the average sense.

We prove that the curvature decay of a complete noncompact Kähler manifold with nonnegative curvature operator and with the maximal volume growth is precisely quadratic in certain average sense.
