Abstract
For an operator T in the class B_{n}(Ω), introduced by Cowen and Douglas, the simultaneous unitary equivalence class of the curvature and the covariant derivatives up to a certain order of the corresponding bundle E_{T} determine the unitary equivalence class of the operator T. In a subsequent paper, the authors ask if the simultaneous unitary equivalence class of the curvature and these covariant derivatives are necessary to determine the unitary equivalence class of the operator T € B_{n}(Ω). Here we show that some of the covariant derivatives are necessary. Our examples consist of homogeneous operators in B_{n}(D). For homogeneous operators, the simultaneous unitary equivalence class of the curvature and all its covariant derivatives at any point w in the unit disc D are determined from the simultaneous unitary equivalence class at 0. This shows that it is enough to calculate all the invariants and compare them at just one point, say 0. These calculations are then carried out in number of examples. One of our main results is that the curvature along with its covariant derivative of order (0,1) at 0 determines the equivalence class of generic homogeneous Hermitian holomorphic vector bundles over the unit disc.
