Holography principle for twistor spaces

Pure and Applied Mathematics Quarterly. 2014. Vol. 10. No. 2. P. 325-354.

Let S be a smooth rational curve on a complex manifold M. It is called ample if its normal bundle is positive: NS=⨁O(i_k),i_k<0. We assume that M is covered by smooth holomorphic deformations of S. The basic example of such a manifold is a twistor space of a hyperkähler or a 4–dimensional anti-selfdual Riemannian manifold X (not necessarily compact). We prove “a holography principle” for such a manifold: any meromorphic function defined in a neighbourhood U of S can be extended to M, and any section of a holomorphic line bundle can be extended from U to M. This is used to define the notion of a Moishezon twistor space: this is a twistor space admitting a holomorphic embedding to a Moishezon variety M′. We show that this property is local on X, and the variety M′ is unique up to birational transform. We prove that the twistor spaces of hyperkähler manifolds obtained by hyperkähler reduction of flat quaternionic-Hermitian spaces by the action of reductive Lie groups (such as Nakajima’s quiver varieties) are always Moishezon.
