In this paper we introduce a new class of domains in complex Euclidean space, called Goldilocks domains, and study their complex geometry. These domains are defined in terms of a lower bound on how fast the Kobayashi metric grows and an upper bound on how fast the Kobayashi distance grows as one approaches the boundary. Strongly pseudoconvex domains and weakly pseudoconvex domains of finite type always satisfy this Goldilocks condition, but we also present families of Goldilocks domains that have low boundary regularity or have boundary points of infinite type. We will show that the Kobayashi metric on these domains behaves, in some sense, like a negatively curved Riemannian metric. In particular, it satisfies a visibility condition in the sense of Eberlein and O'Neill. This behavior allows us to prove a variety of results concerning boundary extension of maps and to establish Wolff-Denjoy theorems for a wide collection of domains. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc.
