On equality of line type and variety type of real hypersurfaces in Cn Academic Article uri icon


  • Recently McNeal proved, by analytic methods, that the D'Angelo type of a boundary point of a convex domain agrees with the maximal order of contact of the boundary with complex lines. We give an elementary geometric proof and generalization of McNeal's theorem. 1992 Mathematica Josephina, Inc.
