A weighted extremal function and equilibrium measure

Let $K={\bf R}^n\subset {\bf C}^n$ and $Q(x):=\frac{1}{2}\log (1+x^2)$ where $x=(x_1,...,x_n)$ and $x^2 = x_1^2+\cdots +x_n^2$ Utilizing extremal functions for convex bodies in ${\bf R}^n\subset {\bf C}^n$ and Sadullaev's characterization of algebraicity for complex analytic subvarieties of ${\bf C}^n$ we prove the following explicit formula for the weighted extremal function $V_{K,Q}$ : $V_{K,Q}(z)=\frac{1}{2}\log \bigl( [1+|z|^2] + \{ [1+|z|^2]^2-|1+z^2|^2\}^{1/2})$ where $z=(z_1,...,z_n)$ and $z^2 = z_1^2+\cdots +z_n^2$. As a corollary, we find that the Alexander capacity $T_{\omega}({\bf R} {\bf P}^n)$ of ${\bf R} {\bf P}^n$ is $1/\sqrt 2$ We also compute the Monge-Ampère measure of $V_{K,Q}$ : $(dd^cV_{K,Q})^n = n!\frac{1}{(1+x^2)^{\frac{n+1}{2}}}dx.$
