\(L^ 2\)-cohomology and index theorem for the Bergman metric. (English) Zbl 0532.58027

Let \(\Omega\) be a strictly pseudoconvex domain in \({\mathbb{C}}^ n\) endowed with its Bergman metric. The \(L_ 2\) cohomology of \(\Omega\) is infinite dimensional in the middle degree and vanishes for all other degrees. Asymptotic expansions are given for the Schwartz kernels of the corresponding projections onto harmonic forms. This includes an index theorem for the Dolbeault complex of the Bergman metric.
