Singular Metrics and the CalabiYau Theorem in NonArchimedean Geometry

A version of the fundamental CalabiYau theorem in complex analytic geometry states that if $L$ is an ample line bundle on a smooth, complex projective variety $X$, then any smooth volume form on $X$ of the same total mass as $L$ is the curvature volume form of a unique smooth metric on $L$. Recently Yuan and Zhang proved a version of the uniqueness statement in nonArchimedean geometry. I will report on joint work with S. Boucksom and C. Favre where we prove the corresponding existence result. Our method requires us to use a notion of singular semipositive metrics in a nonArchimedean context.
