Algebro-geometric study of K-stability of varieties -- Yuji Odaka, November 22, 2013
The K-stability of varieties is a purely algebro-geometric notion, although coming from differential geometric motivation (Yau, Tian, Donaldson).
I am willing to explain how K-stability is also natural and interesting from ALGEBRO-geometric viewpoint as well, whose large parts should be not yet discovered.
After special emphasis on basics, I'll "sketch" works relating it to
1. Birational geometry (MMP-based)
2. Construction of moduli of varieties.
Time permitting, I may add more explanations on Fano case.
