On a compact connected -dimensional Kähler manifold with Kähler form , given a smooth function and an integer , we want to solve uniquely in the equation , relying on the notion of -positivity for (the extreme cases are solved: by (Yau in 1978), and trivially). We solve by the continuity method the corresponding complex elliptic th Hessian equation, more difficult to solve than the Calabi-Yau equation ( ), under the assumption that the holomorphic bisectional curvature of the manifold is nonnegative, required here only to derive an a priori eigenvalues pinching.
