### Spaces of complex geodesics and related structures

Abstract:

On a complex n-manifold with holomorphic projective connexion, any point has a neighbourhood U of which the space of geodesies has naturally the structure of a (Hausdorff) complex (2n-2)-manifold; it is shown that the complex structure of this auxiliary space encodes, in a sense, the original projective connexion by means of a complete analytic family of and#x2119;n-1's. Rather strikingly, small deformations of the space of geodesies correspond precisely to small deformations of...
