The theme of this program is the interaction between algebro-geometric and differential-geometric approaches. In algebraic geometry, one is interested in constructing compact moduli spaces of varieties. Even if one starts with manifolds, the compactification will almost always involve the inclusion of appropriate singular varieties. In a case when the manifolds have canonical metrics, such as Kahler-Einstein metrics, one can approach these questions differential-geometrically, studying the convergence of the metrics and the metric nature of the singular limits. Such ideas are well-established in the case of the moduli of curves and the Deligne-Mumford compactification. The purpose of this program is to make progress in higher dimensions, in the light of a number of recent developments coming from pluripotential theory, Riemannian convergence theory and algebraic geometry. The program will be an opportunity for specialists in the various different fields to interact and share expertise. Topics which will be discussed include:
1. The differential geometric interpretation of the moduli of varieties of general type constructed by Alexeev, Kollar, Shepherd-Barron.
2. Moduli spaces of Fano varieties, and connections with stability.
3. Kahler-Einstein metrics on singular varieties; their singularities and metric tangent cones.
4. Riemannian collapsing and large complex structure limits of Calabi-Yau manifolds.
Program Application is now closed.
