Abstract
We introduce a model for Hermitian holormorphic Deligne cohomology on a projective algebraic manifold
which allows to incorporate singular hermitian structures along a normal crossing divisor. In the case of a
projective curve, the cup-product in cohomology is shown to correspond to a generalization of the Deligne
pairing to line bundles with "good" hermitian metrics in the sense of Mumford and others. A particular case
is that of the tangent bundle of the curve twisted by the negative of the singularity divisor of a hyperbolic
metric: its cup square (corrected by the total area) is shown to be a functional whose extrema are the
metrics of constant negative curvature.
