A Characterization of Complex Projective Spaces by Sections of Line Bundles


Let M be a n-dimensional compact irreducible complex space with a line bundle L. It is shown that if M is completely intersected with respect to L and dimH0(M, L) = n + 1, then M is biholomorphic to a complex projective space Pn of dimension n.
