# Hyperbolic domains in real Euclidean spaces

## Franc Forstnerič University of Ljubljana

In a recent joint work with David Kalaj (2021), we introduced a new Finsler pseudometric on any domain in the real Euclidean space $\mathbb R^n$ for $n\ge 3$, defined in terms of conformal harmonic discs, by analogy with the Kobayashi pseudometric on complex manifolds. This "minimal pseudometric" describes the maximal rate of growth of hyperbolic conformal minimal surfaces in a given domain. On the unit ball, the minimal metric coincides with the classical Beltrami-Cayley-Klein metric. I will discuss sufficient geometric conditions for a domain to be (complete) hyperbolic, meaning that its minimal pseudometric is a (complete) metric.
