Extremal K\"ahler metrics on blowups

  title={Extremal K\"ahler metrics on blowups},
  author={Ruadha'i Dervan and Lars Martin Sektnan},
Consider a compact Kähler manifold which either admits an extremal Kähler metric, or is a small deformation of such a manifold. We show that the blowup of the manifold at a point admits an extremal Kähler metric in Kähler classes making the exceptional divisor sufficiently small if and only if it is relatively K-stable, thus proving a special case of the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture. We also give a geometric interpretation of what relative K-stability means in this case in terms of finite… 


On blowing up extremal Kähler manifolds
We show that the blowup of an extremal Kahler manifold at a relatively stable point in the sense of GIT admits an extremal metric in Kahler classes that make the exceptional divisor sufficiently
Blowing up extremal Kähler manifolds II
This is a continuation of the work of Arezzo–Pacard–Singer and the author on blowups of extremal Kähler manifolds. We prove the conjecture stated in Székelyhidi (Duke Math J 161(8):1411–1453, 2012),
Relative K-stability for Kähler manifolds
We study the existence of extremal Kähler metrics on Kähler manifolds. After introducing a notion of relative K-stability for Kähler manifolds, we prove that Kähler manifolds admitting extremal
Constant Scalar Curvature and Extremal Kahler Metrics on Blow ups
Extremal Kahler metrics were introduced by E. Calabi as best representatives of a given Kahler class of a complex compact manifold, these metrics are critical points of the L 2 norm of the scalar
Almost-Kähler smoothings of compact complex surfaces with $A_1$ singularities
This paper is concerned with the existence of metrics of constant Hermitian scalar curvature on almost-Kahler manifolds obtained as smoothings of a constant scalar curvature Kahler orbifold, with A1
The Kähler–Ricci flow and optimal degenerations
We prove that on Fano manifolds, the Kahler-Ricci flow produces a "most destabilising" degeneration, with respect to a new stability notion related to the H-functional. This answers questions of
K-Semistability of cscK Manifolds with Transcendental Cohomology Class
We prove that constant scalar curvature Kähler (cscK) manifolds with transcendental cohomology class are K-semistable, naturally generalising the situation for polarised manifolds. Relying on a
Deformation constructions of extremal metrics
In the first part of this thesis we investigate the deformation theory of compact constant scalar curvature Kähler (cscK) and extremal Kähler manifolds. In particular, we will characterise
The moduli space of Fano manifolds with Kähler–Ricci solitons
We construct a canonical Hausdorff complex analytic moduli space of Fano manifolds with K\"ahler-Ricci solitons. This naturally enlarges the moduli space of Fano manifolds with K\"ahler-Einstein
Scalar Curvature and Stability of Toric Varieties
We define a stability condition for a polarised algebraic variety and state a conjecture relating this to the existence of a Kahler metric of constant scalar curvature. The main result of the paper
