Time:Wed & Fri, 13:30-15:05

This is an introductory course of Kähler Geometry focusing on the problem of finding a Kähler metric of constant scalar curvature. We start with foundations of connections and curvature, and then review old  and new existence results of Kähler-Einstein metrics and known obstructions such as K-stability.


Prerequisite: Some familiarity with manifolds and Lie groups
