The Kähler-Ricci flow and canonical measures

We define and prove the existence of canonical measures of Einstein type on algebraic manifolds of nonnegative Kodaira dimension. We also show that the Kähler-Ricci flow can be uniquely defined on algebraic varieties with log terminal singularities. It reveals the deep connection between the Ricci flow and the classification of algebraic varieties.
