Numerical Kaehler-Ricci soliton on the second del Pezzo

  title={Numerical Kaehler-Ricci soliton on the second del Pezzo},
  author={Matthew Headrick and Toby Wiseman},
  journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry},
The second del Pezzo surface is known by work of Tian-Zhu and Wang-Zhu to admit a unique Kaehler-Ricci soliton. Applying a method described in hep-th/0703057, we use Ricci flow to numerically compute that soliton metric. We numerically compute the value of its Perelman entropy (or Gaussian density).

Recent Progress on Ricci Solitons

Ricci solitons are natural generalizations of Einstein metrics. They are also special solutions to Hamilton's Ricci flow and play important roles in the singularity study of the Ricci flow. In this

Numerical Approximations to Extremal Toric Kähler Metrics with Arbitrary Kähler Class

A small eigenvalue of the scalar Laplacian of the Albert Einstein metric gives numerical evidence that the Einstein metric is conformally unstable under Ricci flow.

An affine sphere equation associated to Einstein toric surfaces

As seen in the works of Calabi, Cheng-Yau and Loftin, affine sphere equations have a close relationship with Kaehler-Einstein metrics. The main purpose of this note is to show that an equation

Approximating Ricci solitons and quasi-Einstein metrics on toric surfaces

We present a general numerical method for investigating prescribed Ricci curvature problems on toric K\"ahler manifolds. This method is applied to two generalisations of Einstein metrics, namely

A new approach to static numerical relativity and its application to Kaluza–Klein black holes

We propose a framework for solving the Einstein equation for static and Euclidean metrics. First, we address the issue of gauge-fixing by borrowing from the Ricci-flow literature the so-called

A numerical approach to finding general stationary vacuum black holes

The Harmonic Einstein equation is the vacuum Einstein equation supplemented by a gauge fixing term which we take to be that of DeTurck. For static black holes analytically continued to Riemannian



Geometry of Ricci Solitons*

Ricci solitons are natural generalizations of Einstein metrics on one hand, and are special solutions of the Ricci flow of Hamilton on the other hand. In this paper we survey some of the recent

Numerical Kähler-Einstein Metric on the Third del Pezzo

The third del Pezzo surface admits a unique Kähler-Einstein metric, which is not known in closed form. The manifold’s toric structure reduces the Einstein equation to a single Monge-Ampère equation

Gaussian densities and stability for some Ricci solitons

In this announcement, we exhibit the second variation of Perelman's $\lambda$ and $\nu$ functionals for the Ricci flow, and investigate the linear stability of examples. We also define the "central

A new holomorphic invariant and uniqueness of Kähler-Ricci solitons

Abstract. In this paper, a new holomorphic invariant is defined on a compact Kähler manifold with positive first Chern class and nontrivial holomorphic vector fields. This invariant generalizes the

Convergence of Kähler-Ricci flow

In this paper, we prove a theorem on convergence of Kahler-Ricci flow on a compact Kahler manifold which admits a Kahler-Ricci soliton

AbstractVarious estimates of the lower bound of the holomorphic invariant α(M), defined in [T], are given here by using branched coverings, potential estimates and Lelong numbers of positive,d-closed

The entropy formula for the Ricci flow and its geometric applications

We present a monotonic expression for the Ricci flow, valid in all dimensions and without curvature assumptions. It is interpreted as an entropy for a certain canonical ensemble. Several geometric
