Let (X,L) be a polarized complex manifold. A good understanding of the space of Kähler metrics in the cohomology class of L is crucial to variational approach to constructing canonical metrics on X. I will discuss joint work with S. Boucksom, in which we analyze geodesic rays in (the completion of) this space, partially from a non-Archimedean point of view.
