A weak notion of strict pseudoconvexity. Applications and examplesAbstract: Let $\Omega $ be a bounded ${\mathcal{C}}^{\infty}$smoothly bounded domain in ${\mathbb{C}}^{n}.$ For such a domain we define a new notion between strict pseudoconvexity and pseudoconvexity: the size of the set $W$ of weakly pseudoconvex points on $\partial \Omega $ is small with respect to Minkowski dimension: near each point in the boundary $\partial \Omega ,$ there is at least one complex tangent direction in which the slices of $W$ has a upper Minkowski dimension strictly smaller than $2.$ We propose to call this notion "strong pseudoconvexity"; this word is free since "strict pseudoconvexity" gets the precedence in the case where all the points in $\partial \Omega $ are stricly pseudoconvex. For such domains we prove that if $S$ is a separated sequence of points contained in the support of a divisor in the Blaschke class, then a canonical measure associated to $S$ is bounded. If moreover the domain is $p$regular, and the sequence $S$ is dual bounded in the Hardy space $H^{p}(\Omega),$ then the previous measure is Carleson. As an application we prove a theorem on interpolating sequences in bounded convex domains of finte type in ${\mathbb{C}}^{n}.$ Examples of such pseudoconvex domains are finite type domains in ${\mathbb{C}}^{2},$ finite type convex domains in ${\mathbb{C}}^{n},$ finite type domains which have locally diagonalizable Levi form, domains with real analytic boundary and of course, stricly pseudoconvex domains in ${\mathbb{C}}^{n}.$ Domains like ${z_{1}} ^{2}+\exp \{1{z_{2}} ^{2}\}<1,$ which are not of finite type are nevertheless strongly pseudoconvex, in this sense.
