A property of a hypothetical complex structure on the six sphere. (English) Zbl 0891.53018
A long standing problem in differential geometry is the existence of a complex structure on the six-dimensional sphere \(S^6\). Several proofs have been given, but none has been accepted by the mathematical community. In this paper, the author supposes that there exists a complex structure on the six-sphere. For such a hypothetical complex structure, Dolbeault cohomology groups \(H^{p,q} (S^6)\) would be defined. It is proved that then \(\dim H^{0,1} (S^6)\geq 1\).
