|Topic:||An Obstruction to Constant Scalar Curvature Kahler Metrics|
|Date:||Wednesday, March 2|
|Time/Room:||2:30pm - 3:30pm/West Building Lecture Hall|
(Joint work with Richard Thomas) I will discuss K-stability and its relation to constant scalar curvature metrics. This leads to a notion of slope stability for manifolds in terms of its subschemes, which gives an obstruction to finding constant scalar curvature Kahler metrics in a given rational Kahler class.
