Proper holomorphic embeddings of finitely connected planar domains into ℂn

Irena Majcen

Full-text: Open access


In this paper we consider proper holomorphic embeddings of finitely connected planar domains into ℂn that approximate given proper embeddings on smooth curves. As a side result we obtain a tool for approximating a $\mathcal{C}^{\infty}$ diffeomorphism on a polynomially convex set in ℂn by an automorphism of ℂn that satisfies some additional properties along a real embedded curve.
