1:00pm to 2:30pm

In joint work with K. Zhang we construct some explicit canonical geometries on various classes of complex manifolds, following a general symmetry principle pioneered by Calabi in the 70's. Our focus is to allow edge type singularities (that are the natural higher-dimensional analogues of conical Riemann surfaces studied by Picard and others since the 19th century) and study Gromov-Hausdorff limits as the angle in the cone tends to zero.
