Analogues of Rossi's Map and E. Cartan's Classification of Homogeneous Strongly Pseudoconvex 3-Dimensional Hypersurfaces
Dept. of Mathematics, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 0200, Australia
We introduce analogues of a map due to H. Rossi ["Attaching analytic spaces to an analytic space along a pseudoconcave boundary", in: Proc. Conf. Complex Analysis, Minneapolis 1964, Springer-Verlag 1965, 242--256] and show how they can be used to explicitly determine all covers of certain homogeneous strongly pseudoconvex 3-dimensional hypersurfaces that appear in the classification obtained by E. Cartan in 1932.
Keywords: Homogeneous 3-dimensional CR-manifolds, Rossi's example.
