T&G: Tristan Collins (Harvard), Geometric flows and algebraic geometry

I will discuss the inverse Monge-Ampere flow and its applications to the existence, and non-existence, of Kahler-Einstein metrics. To motivate this discussion I will first describe the classical theory of the Donaldson heat flow on a Riemann surface, and its relationship with the Harder-Narasimhan filtration of an unstable vector bundle.
