Lecture 2: Metric and algebraic limits of Kähler manifolds

Lecturer: 

Prof. Gang Tian, Princeton University and Peking University

Since the late 80's, there have been many fundamental works on singularity formation of the Einstein equation on Riemannian manifolds. In this second lecture, I will discuss some of these works for Kähler manifolds. I will also show how complex analysis and algebraic geometry can be applied to give a rather complete understanding of singularity formation for Kähler-Einstein metrics.
