Topic: | An Obstruction to Constant Scalar Curvature Kahler Metrics |

Speaker: | Julius Ross |

Affiliation: | Columbia University |

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.
