Kahler-Einstein metrics and Geometric Invariant Theory
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
I will discuss an approach to a version of Yau's conjecture, relating Kahler-Einstein metrics to notions of stability. The core of this approach involves estimates for the Chow invariant, obtained from asymptotic analysis. We will also describe progress on a variant of the set-up involving an anticanonical divisor, somewhat analogous to the theory of parabolic bundles. Another theme in the talk will be the importance of making progress on testing stability in explicit cases.
