This quantity collects lecture notes from classes provided at a number of meetings and workshops, and gives the 1st exposition in e-book type of the elemental thought of the Kähler-Ricci circulate and its present cutting-edge. whereas a number of very good books on Kähler-Einstein geometry can be found, there were no such works at the Kähler-Ricci move. The e-book will function a precious source for graduate scholars and researchers in complicated differential geometry, advanced algebraic geometry and Riemannian geometry, and may with a bit of luck foster additional advancements during this attention-grabbing sector of research.
The Ricci stream used to be first brought through R. Hamilton within the early Nineteen Eighties, and is relevant in G. Perelman’s celebrated evidence of the Poincaré conjecture. whilst really expert for Kähler manifolds, it turns into the Kähler-Ricci move, and decreases to a scalar PDE (parabolic complicated Monge-Ampère equation).
As a spin-off of his leap forward, G. Perelman proved the convergence of the Kähler-Ricci circulate on Kähler-Einstein manifolds of optimistic scalar curvature (Fano manifolds). almost immediately after, G. Tian and J. tune found a posh analogue of Perelman’s rules: the Kähler-Ricci stream is a metric embodiment of the minimum version application of the underlying manifold, and flips and divisorial contractions suppose the position of Perelman’s surgeries.
