*Hodge manifold*

A complex manifold on which a Hodge metric can be given, that is, a Kähler metric whose fundamental form defines an integral cohomology class. A compact complex manifold is a Hodge manifold if and only if it is isomorphic to a smooth algebraic subvariety of some complex projective space (Kodaira's projective imbedding theorem).

See also Kähler manifold.
