Abstract: The affine connection and curvature introduced by Tanaka on a strongly pseudoconvex real hypersurface are computed explicitly in terms of its defining function. If Fefferman's defining function is used, then the Ricci form is shown to be a function multiple of the Levi form. The factor is computable by Fefferman's algorithm and its positivity implies the vanishing of certain cohomology groups (of the $ {\bar \partial _b}$ complex) in the compact case.
