Deformation theory of scalar-flat ALE Kahler surfaces

We prove a Kuranishi-type theorem for deformations of complex structures on ALE Kahler surfaces. This is used to prove that for any scalar-flat Kahler ALE surfaces, all small deformations of complex structure also admit scalar-flat Kahler ALE metrics. A local moduli space of scalar-flat Kahler ALE metrics is then constructed, which is shown to be universal up to small diffeomorphisms (that is, diffeomorphisms which are close to the identity in a suitable sense). A formula for the dimension of the local moduli space is proved in the case of a scalar-flat Kahler ALE surface which deforms to a minimal resolution of \C^2/\Gamma, where \Gamma is a finite subgroup of U(2) without complex reflections. This is a joint work with Jeff Viaclovsky.

The extension problem of the mean curvature flow

We show that the mean curvature blows up at the first finite singular time for a closed smooth embedded mean curvature flow in R^3. A key ingredient of the proof is to show a two-sided pseudo-locality property of the mean curvature flow, whenever the mean curvature is bounded. This is a joint work with Haozhao Li.

Ben Weinkove

Gauduchon metrics with prescribed volume form

Every compact complex manifold admits a Gauduchon metric in each conformal class of Hermitian metrics. In 1984 Gauduchon conjectured that one can prescribe the volume form of such a metric. I will discuss the proof of this conjecture, which amounts to solving a nonlinear Monge-Ampere type equation. This is a joint work with Gabor Szekelyhidi and Valentino Tosatti.
