Event Description: 

Title: Kahler-Einstein metrics

Abstract: Kahler-Einstein metrics are of fundamental importance in
Kahler geometry, with connections to algebraic geometry, geometric
analysis, string theory amongst other fields. Their study has received
a great deal of attention recently, culminating in the solution of the
Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture, characterizing which complex manifolds
admit Kahler-Einstein metrics. I will give an overview of the field,
including some recent developments.
