We consider Fano manifolds admitting an algebraic torus action with general orbit of codimension one. Using a recent result of Datar and Szekelyhidi, we effectively determine the existence of Kahler-Ricci solitons for those manifolds via the notion of equivariant K-stability. This allows us to give new examples of Kahler-Einstein Fano threefolds, and Fano threefolds admitting a non-trivial Kahler-Ricci soliton.

K-stability of Fano spherical varieties

We prove a combinatorial criterion for K-stability of a Q-Fano spherical variety with respect to equivariant special test configurations, in terms of its moment polytope and some combinatorial data

On K‐stability and the volume functions of ℚ‐Fano varieties

We introduce a new effective stability named ‘divisorial stability’ for Fano manifolds that is weaker than K‐stability and is stronger than slope stability along divisors. We show that we can test

Explicit Gromov-Hausdorff compactifications of moduli spaces of K\"ahler-Einstein Fano manifolds

We exhibit the first non-trivial concrete examples of Gromov-Hausdorff compactifications of moduli spaces of K\"ahler-Einstein Fano manifolds in all complex dimensions bigger than two (Fano K-moduli

Algebraicity of the metric tangent cones and equivariant K-stability

We prove two new results on the K K -polystability of Q \mathbb {Q} -Fano varieties based on purely algebro-geometric arguments. The first one says that any K K

Sasaki–Einstein metrics and K–stability

We show that a polarized affine variety admits a Ricci flat K\"ahler cone metric, if and only if it is K-stable. This generalizes Chen-Donaldson-Sun's solution of the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture to

Kähler–Einstein metrics on symmetric general arrangement varieties

We calculate Chow quotients of some families of symmetric T-varieties. In complexity two we obtain new examples of Kähler–Einstein metrics by bounding the symmetric alpha invariant of their orbifold

Torus Equivariant K-Stability

It is conjectured that to test the K-polystability of a polarised variety it is enough to consider test-configurations which are equivariant with respect to a torus in the automorphism group. We

Consider a fibred compact Kähler manifold X endowed with a relatively ample line bundle, such that each fibre admits a constant scalar curvature Kähler (cscK) metric and has discrete automorphism

In this short note we determine the greatest lower bounds on Ricci curvature for all Fano T ‐manifolds of complexity one, generalizing the result of Chi Li. Our method of proof is based on the work



Fano threefolds with 2-torus action - a picture book

Following the work of Altmann and Hausen we give a combinatorial description in terms for smooth Fano threefolds admitting a 2-torus action. We show that a whole variety of properties and invariants

Kähler–Einstein metrics along the smooth continuity method

We show that if a Fano manifold M is K-stable with respect to special degenerations equivariant under a compact group of automorphisms, then M admits a Kähler–Einstein metric. This is a strengthening

Generalizing the passage from a fan to a toric variety, we provide a combinatorial approach to construct arbitrary effective torus actions on normal, algebraic varieties. Based on the notion of a

We propose a method to compute a desingularization of a normal affine varietyX endowed with a torus action in terms of a combinatorial description of such a variety due to Altmann and Hausen. This

Deformations of rational T-varieties

We show how to construct certain homogeneous deformations for rational normal varieties with codimension one torus action. This can then be used to construct homogeneous deformations of any toric
