This quantity collects lecture notes from classes provided at a number of meetings and workshops, and offers the 1st exposition in e-book kind of the fundamental concept of the Kähler-Ricci move and its present cutting-edge. whereas a number of first-class books on Kähler-Einstein geometry can be found, there were no such works at the Kähler-Ricci circulation. The ebook will function a worthy source for graduate scholars and researchers in complicated differential geometry, complicated algebraic geometry and Riemannian geometry, and may with a bit of luck foster additional advancements during this interesting sector of research.

The Ricci move used to be first brought by way of R. Hamilton within the early Eighties, and is crucial in G. Perelman’s celebrated evidence of the Poincaré conjecture. whilst really good for Kähler manifolds, it turns into the Kähler-Ricci stream, and decreases to a scalar PDE (parabolic advanced Monge-Ampère equation).
As a spin-off of his leap forward, G. Perelman proved the convergence of the Kähler-Ricci stream on Kähler-Einstein manifolds of optimistic scalar curvature (Fano manifolds). almost immediately after, G. Tian and J. tune chanced on a posh analogue of Perelman’s principles: the Kähler-Ricci circulation is a metric embodiment of the minimum version software of the underlying manifold, and flips and divisorial contractions imagine the position of Perelman’s surgeries.

Noncommutative geometry, encouraged through quantum physics, describes singular areas via their noncommutative coordinate algebras and metric constructions via Dirac-like operators. Such metric geometries are defined mathematically through Connes' conception of spectral triples. those lectures, introduced at an EMS summer time college on noncommutative geometry and its purposes, supply an summary of spectral triples in keeping with examples.

This can be a longer moment version of "The Topology of Torus activities on Symplectic Manifolds" released during this sequence in 1991. the cloth and references were up-to-date. Symplectic manifolds and torus activities are investigated, with quite a few examples of torus activities, for example on a few moduli areas.
