Abstract: I will report recent progress on the study of the Diederich-Fornaess index of weakly pseudoconvex domains. The index is a numerical index measuring certain pseudoconvexity of their weakly pseudoconvex boundaries. For Levi-flat boundaries, it is expressed by the connection and curvature of their holomorphic normal bundle and we see that it makes sense even for abstract Levi-flat CR manifolds. I will explain this our formulation and related global estimates.
