Abstract: It is well known that the holomorphic sectional curvature of a bounded symmetric domain is bounded above by a negative constant. In this paper we show that this is true more generally for a quasi-symmetric Siegel domain, and the proof is based on a formula for the curvature from the author's thesis. The bounded homogeneous domains are, as is well known, biholomorphic to homogeneous Siegel domains and the bounded symmetric domains are biholomorphic to those quasi-symmetric (homogeneous) Siegel domains that satisfy a certain algebraic identity (which we do not need here).
