On proper discs in complex manifolds
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 57 (2007) no. 5, p. 1521-1535

Let X be a complex manifold of dimension at least 2 which has an exhaustion function whose Levi form has at each point at least 2 strictly positive eigenvalues. We construct proper holomorphic discs in X through any given point and in any given direction.

Soit X une variété analytique complexe de dimension au moins 2 qui possède une fonction d’exhaustion telle que sa forme de Levi possède au moins 2 valeurs propres strictement positives en tout point de X. On construit les disques holomorphes dans X par n’importe quel point donné et dans n’importe quelle direction donnée.
