Analysis and PDE Seminar: The Laplacian for metrics on a complex manifold with divisors

Seminar | March 26 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

On a complex manifold with normally crossing divisors there are several natural classes of metrics. I will talk here about metrics of "Weil-Petersson type" and their Hodge and spectral theory. This is based on joint work with Jesse Gell-Redman and earlier results with Xuwen Zhu.
