Basics on extremal Kähler metrics and generalized Kähler-Einstein metrics
In a series of lectures, we discuss the relationship between extremal Kähler metrics and generalized Kähler-Einstein metrics on Fano manifolds. We first study the basic fact that the existence of a generalized Kähler-Einstein metric implies the existence of an extremal Kähler metric in the anticanonical class. We also consider an example of a Fano manifold with an extremal Kähler metric and without a generalized Kähler-Einstein metric. If time permits, recent results of Nitta-Saito-Yotsutani wil also be discussed.
