Abstract

We exhibit examples of compact three-dimensional CR manifolds of positive Webster class, Rossi spheres, for which the pseudo-hermitian mass as defined in [CMY17] is negative, and for which the infimum of the CR-Sobolev quotient is not attained. To our knowledge, this is the first geometric context on smooth closed manifolds where this phenomenon arises, in striking contrast to the Riemannian case.
