The uniformization of complete non-compact Kahler manifolds and the Kahler Ricci flow




Abstract: Yau's uniformization conjecture states: If a complete simply-connected non-compact Kahler manifold (M, g) has positive holomoprphic bisectional curvature, then M is biholomorphic to complex Euclidean space C^n. In this talk I will discuss my joint results with L.F. Tam on Yau's conjecture and the Kahler Ricci flow.
