Several injectivity theorems on compact Kähler manifolds


In this short note, we use the Bochner technique and the Hodge theory in complex differential geometry to prove several injectivity results for the cohomology of holomorphic vector bundles on compact Kähler manifolds, which generalize Enoki’s original injectivity theorem.
