Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: Energy functionals and canonical Kahler metrics
Speaker: Ben Weinkove
Speaker Info: Harvard University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will discuss some results on canonical Kahler metrics (such as Kahler-Einstein metrics, constant scalar curvature metrics) and their associated energy functionals in Kahler geometry. I will briefly explain how these results relate to the conjecture of Yau-Tian-Donaldson on the equivalence of the existence of constant scalar curvature Kahler metrics and notions of stability.
