Greatest lower bounds on the Ricci curvature of Fano manifolds

Friday, March 6, 2009 -
3:00pm to 5:00pm
On Fano manifolds we study the supremum of the possible t such that there exists a metric in the first Chern class with Ricci curvature bounded below by t. For the projective plane blown up in one point we show that this supremum is 6/7.
