Hermitian curvature flow

Jeffrey StreetsGang Tian — 2011

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We define a functional for Hermitian metrics using the curvature of the Chern connection. The Euler–Lagrange equation for this functional is an elliptic equation for Hermitian metrics. Solutions to this equation are related to Kähler–Einstein metrics, and are automatically Kähler–Einstein under certain conditions. Given this, a natural parabolic flow equation arises. We prove short time existence and regularity results for this flow, as well as stability for the flow near Kähler–Einstein metrics...

Conformally bending three-manifolds with boundary

Matthew GurskyJeffrey StreetsMicah Warren — 2010

Annales de l’institut Fourier

Given a three-dimensional manifold with boundary, the Cartan-Hadamard theorem implies that there are obstructions to filling the interior of the manifold with a complete metric of negative curvature. In this paper, we show that any three-dimensional manifold with boundary can be filled conformally with a complete metric satisfying a pinching condition: given any small constant, the ratio of the largest sectional curvature to (the absolute value of) the scalar curvature is less than this constant....
