Kähler-Einstein metrics: Old and New
by Daniele Angella, Cristiano Spotti
Publisher: arXiv.org 2017
Number of pages: 48
We present classical and recent results on Kaehler-Einstein metrics on compact complex manifolds, focusing on existence, obstructions and relations to algebraic geometric notions of stability (K-stability). These are the notes for the SMI course 'Kaehler-Einstein metrics' given by C.S. in Cortona (Italy), May 2017.

An attempt is made of giving a self-contained introduction to holomorphic ideas in general relativity, following work over the last thirty years by several authors. The main topics are complex manifolds, spinor and twistor methods, heaven spaces.

The intent is not to give a thorough treatment of the algebraic and differential geometry of complex manifolds, but to introduce the reader to material of current interest as quickly as possible. A number of interesting examples is provided.
