Kähler Geometry, Einstein Metrics, and Generalizations March 21, 2016 - March 25, 2016
Registration Deadline: March 21, 2016 about 1 year from now
To apply for Funding you must register by: December 21, 2015 11 months from now

Organizers Simon Donaldson (Imperial College, London), Gang Tian (Princeton University), Jeff Viaclovsky (University of Wisconsin)

Description

The workshop will integrate elements from complex differential geometry with Einsten metrics and their generalizations. The topics will include

  • Existence of Kähler-Einstein metrics and extremal Kähler metrics. Notions of stability in algebraic geometry such as Chow stability, K-stability, b-stability, and polytope stability. Kähler-Einstein metrics with conical singularities along a divisor.

  • Calabi-Yau metrics and collapsed limit spaces. Connections with physics and mirror symmetry.

  • Einstein metrics and their moduli spaces, ε-regularity, noncompact examples such as ALE, ALF, and Poincaré -Einstein metrics. Generalizations of the Einstein condition, such as Bach-flat metrics and Ricci solitons.

  • Sasaki-Einstein metrics and metrics with special holonomy. New examples and classification problems.
