We consider locally conformal Kaehler geometry as an equivariant, homothetic Kaehler geometry (K,Gamma). We show that the de Rham class of the Lee form can be naturally identified with the homomorphism projecting Gamma to its dilation factors, thus completing the description of locally conformal Kaehler geometry in this equivariant setting. The rank r of a locally conformal Kaehler manifold is the rank of the image of this homomorphism. Using algebraic number theory, we show that r is non-trivial, providing explicit examples of locally conformal Kaehler manifolds with r in {2,...,b_1-1}. As far as we know, these are the first examples of this kind. Moreover, we prove that locally conformal Kaehler Oeljeklaus-Toma manifolds have either r=b_1 or r=b_1/2.

Abstract

We consider locally conformal Kaehler geometry as an equivariant, homothetic Kaehler geometry (K,Gamma). We show that the de Rham class of the Lee form can be naturally identified with the homomorphism projecting Gamma to its dilation factors, thus completing the description of locally conformal Kaehler geometry in this equivariant setting. The rank r of a locally conformal Kaehler manifold is the rank of the image of this homomorphism. Using algebraic number theory, we show that r is non-trivial, providing explicit examples of locally conformal Kaehler manifolds with r in {2,...,b_1-1}. As far as we know, these are the first examples of this kind. Moreover, we prove that locally conformal Kaehler Oeljeklaus-Toma manifolds have either r=b_1 or r=b_1/2.
