# The extremal function associated to intrinsic norms

### Abstract

Through the study of the degenerate complex Monge-Ampère equation, we establish the optimal regularity of the extremal function associated to intrinsic norms of Chern-Levine-Nirenberg and Bedford-Taylor. We prove a conjecture of Chern-Levine-Nirenberg on the extended intrinsic norms on complex manifolds and verify Bedford-Taylor’s representation formula for these norms in general.
