DESCRIPTION:Title: F
amilies of singular Kähler-Einstein metrics\nby Henri Guenancia (CNRS
- Univ. Toulouse) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et
Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nI will outline the main results and ideas from a
recent joint work with E. Di Nezza and V. Guedj. The general theme is as f
ollows: let p:X\\to Y be a holomorphic\, proper surjective map from a comp
lex Kähler space X and assume that the fibers X_y admit some (possibly tw
isted) singular Kähler-Einstein metric. We show that the potentials of th
ese metrics admit uniform bounds when y varies in compact subsets. If time
permits\, I will mention a connection with an earlier work (joint with J.
Cao and M. Paun) on the psh variation of the Kähler-Einstein metric on f
amilies of manifolds of general type.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: T
opologically embedding spheres in knot traces\nby Patrick Orson (Bosto

e\n\n\nAbstract\nKnot traces are smooth 4-manifolds with boundary\, that a
re homotopic to the 2-sphere\, and obtained by attaching a 2-handle to the
4-ball along a framed knot in the 3-sphere. I will give a complete charac
terisation for when the generator of the second homotopy group of a knot t
race can be represented by a locally flat embedded 2-sphere with abelian e
xterior fundamental group. The answer is in terms of\nclassical and comput
able invariants of the knot. This is a joint project with Feller\, Miller\
, Nagel\, Powell\, and Ray.\n

queezed knots\nby Lukas Lewark (Univ. Regensburg) as part of CRM - Sé

projective geometry\, and we will discuss a natural decomposition of compa

n spherical surfaces of genus 1 with 1 conical point\nby Gabriele Mond
ello (Univ. di Roma "Sapienza") as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / G
éométrie et Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nA spherical metric on a surface is
a metric of constant curvature 1.\nSuch a metric has a conical point x of
angle $2\\pi\\theta$ if it has vanishing order $(\\theta-1)$ at x.\nA sphe
rical metric in an assigned conformal class can be viewed on one hand as a
solution of a suitable singular Liouville equation.\nOn the other hand\,
when the conformal class is not prescribed\, isotopy classes of spherical
metrics can be considered as flat (SO(3\,R)\,S^2)-structure\, and so their
moduli space has a natural finite-dimensional real-analytic structure.\n\
nI will discuss recent results on the topology of such moduli space of sph
erical metrics with conical points of assigned angles.\nI will then focus
on the case of genus 1 with 1 conical point.\n\nThis is joint work with Er
emenko-Panov and with Eremenko-Gabrielov-Panov.\n

Variational problems in conformal geometry\nby Nicolina Istrati (Tel A

e\n\n\nAbstract\nI will present several natural functionals defined on a c

on metrics appear naturally as the unique extremal metrics of one such fun

as extremal in complex dimension two. I will show that these new metrics\
, while not Gauduchon in general\, give again unique representatives\, up
to constant multiples\, of conformal classes of almost Hermitian metrics.

th Vamsi \nPingali and Chengjian Yao in arXiv:1911.09616 about gravitating
\nvortices. These equations couple a K\\"ahler metric on a compact \nRiem

ped with a fixed global section --- the Higgs field ---\, and have \na sym
plectic interpretation as moment-map equations.\n\nIn our work we give a c

lt establishes the existence of solutions \nprovided that a GIT stability
condition for an effective divisor on \nCP^1 is satisfied. To this end\, w
e use a continuity path starting from \nYang's solution with c = 0. A sali

orms\nby Simone Diverio (SAPIENZA Università di Roma) as part of CRM
- Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nIn the la
st few years there has been a renewed interest around an old conjecture by
Griffiths characterizing which should be the positive characteristic form
s for any given Griffiths positive holomorphic Hermitian vector bundle. Ac
cording to this conjecture\, they should be precisely the characteristic f
orms belonging to the positive cone spanned by the Schur forms.\nAfter rec
alling the various notions of positivity for holomorphic Hermitian vector
bundles\, and how they are (or should be) related\, we shall explain a rec
ent result obtained in collaboration with my PhD student F. Fagioli\, whic
h gives a partial confirmation of the above conjecture.\nSuch a result is
obtained as a consequence of a pointwise\, differential-geometric Gysin fo
rmula for the push-forward of the curvature of the tautological line bundl
es over flag bundles.\n

Amphichiral knots with large 4-genera\nby Allison Miller (Rice Univers

Stability of fibrations through geodesic analysis\nby Michael Hallam (
Oxford University) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et
Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nA celebrated result in geometry is the Kobayashi-
-Hitchin correspondence\, which states that a holomorphic vector bundle on
a compact Kähler manifold admits a Hermite--Einstein metric if and only
if the bundle is slope polystable. Recently\, Dervan and Sektnan have conj
ectured an analogue of this correspondence for fibrations whose fibres are
compact Kähler manifolds admitting Kähler metrics of constant scalar cu
rvature. Their conjecture is that such a fibration is polystable in a suit
able sense\, if and only if it admits an optimal symplectic connection. In
this talk\, I will provide an introduction to this theory\, and describe
my recent work on the conjecture. Namely\, I show that existence of an opt
imal symplectic connection implies polystability with respect to a large c
lass of fibration degenerations. The techniques used involve analysing geo
desics in the space of relatively Kähler metrics of fibrewise constant sc
alar curvature\, and convexity of the log-norm functional in this setting.
This is work for my PhD thesis\, supervised by Ruadhaí Dervan and France
s Kirwan.\n

Bigerbes and applications\nby Chris Kottke (New College of Florida) as

ct\nGerbes are geometric objects on a space which represent degree 3 integ

he Chern class) represent cohomology in degree 2. Among other settings\, t
hey arise naturally as obstructions to lifting the structure group of a pr
incipal G-bundle to a U(1) central extension of G. \nHigher versions of ge
rbes\, representing cohomology classes of degree 4 and up\, are typically
complicated by higher categorical concepts (2-morphisms and so on) in thei
r definition. In contrast\, bigerbes (and their higher cousins) admit a si
mple\, geometric\, non-higher-categorical description\, and provide a sati
sfactory account of the relationship between so-called `string structures'
on a manifold and `fusion spin structures' on its loop space\, among othe

Equivariant K-stability and valuative criteria\nby Ziwen Zhu (Peking U

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Generalizing Poincaré-Type Kähler Metrics\nby Ethan Addison (Notre D
ame Univ.) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et Topologi
e\n\n\nAbstract\nPoincaré-type metrics are a type of complete cusp metric
defined on the complement of a complex hypersurface $X$ in an ambient man
ifold\, yet a result by Auvray shows that constant scalar curvature metric
s of Poincaré-type always split into a product of cscK metrics in each of
the ends\, inducing a cscK metric on $X$. We prove a result about \\emph{
gnarled} Poincaré-type metrics using holomorphic flows on $X$ to construc
t complete cscK metrics near the ends which are perturbations of cscK Poin
caré-type metrics\, even when the induced perturbed Kähler class on $X$
does not admit a cscK metric\, thus generalizing the initial flavor of met
ric to one with fewer restrictions.\n

Closed geodesics and Frøyshov invariants of hyperbolic three-manifolds\nby Francesco Lin (Columbia Univ.) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET
/ Géométrie et Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nFrøyshov invariants are subtle
numerical topological invariants of rational homology three-spheres deri
ved from gradings in monopole Floer homology. In this talk I will look at
their relation with invariants arising from hyperbolic geometry (such as
volumes and lengths of closed geodesics)\, using an odd version of the S
elberg trace formula and ideas from analytic number theory. In particular
\, for the class of minimal L-spaces\, I will describe an effective proc
edure to compute them taking as input explicit geometric data\, and show
for example how this can be used to determine all the Frøyshov invariant
s for the Seifert-Weber dodecahedral space. This is joint work with M. Li

Lens space surgeries\, lattices\, and the Poincaré homology sphere.\n
by Jacob Caudell (Boston College) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET /
Géométrie et Topologie\n\nAbstract: TBA\n\nMoser's classification of Deh
n surgeries on torus knots (1971) inspired a now fifty-years-old project t
o classify "exceptional" Dehn surgeries on knots in the three-sphere. A pr
ominent component of this project seeks to classify which knots admit surg
eries to the "simplest" non-trivial 3-manifolds--lens spaces. By combining
data from Floer homology and the theory of integer lattices into the noti
on of a changemaker lattice\, Greene (2010) solved the lens space realizat
ion problem: every lens space which may be realized as surgery on a knot i
n the three-sphere may be realized by a knot already known to surger to th
at lens space (i.e. a Berge knot). In this talk\, we present a survey of t
echniques in Dehn surgery and their applications\, introduce a lattice the
oretic construction in the spirit of Greene's changemaker lattices\, and d
iscuss applications to surgeries on knots in the Poincaré homology sphere

Embedding and bounding geometrically rational homology 3-spheres\nby A
lan Reid (Rice University) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géomé
trie et Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nBordism properties of closed manifolds ha
ve been a classical and important topic in topology\; for example it is a
classical result of Rohklin that all closed orientable 3-manifolds bound a
compact 4-manifold. In the context of hyperbolic manifolds\, a natural g
eometric version of bordism is that of bounding geometrically: namely whet
her a connected closed orientable hyperbolic n-manifold M could arise as
the totally geodesic boundary of a compact hyperbolic (n+1)-manifold W. In
work with Long (from 2000) we showed that there are infinitely many clos
ed orientable hyperbolic n-manifolds that bound geometrically. One featu
re of our construction is that all examples produced in dimension 3 have
b_1>0. This led to the question of whether there are rational homology 3-
spheres that bound geometrically. In this talk we describe a construction
of infinitely many such rational homology 3-spheres.\n

Steklov eigenvalues\, homogenization and free boundary minimal surfaces\nby Alexandre Girouard (Université de Laval) as part of CRM - Séminair

nce classical antiquity that disks have the largest area among planar figu
res of prescribed perimeter. Nevertheless\, a rigorous proof was only give
n around the end of the 19th century. During the 20th century\, area and p
erimeter were replaced by many other analytic and geometric quantities\, a
nd the geometric setting has been vastly enlarged. In this talk we will be
interested in two such isoperimetric-type problems:\n\n(A) Free boundary
minimal surfaces\nThe minimization of area for surfaces in balls\, with th
eir boundary that are constrained to live on the boundary sphere (free bou
ndary minimal surfaces).\n\nB) Isoperimetric problem for Steklov eigenvalu
es\nThe maximization of the spectral gap of Dirichlet-to-Neumann operators
for surfaces with prescribed perimeter.\n\nFor domains in the unit sphere
and planar domains\, I will describe the complete solution of problem (B)
. It is based on the theory of homogenization by perforation\, a topic whi
ch comes from applied and industrial mathematics. Then\, using work of Fra
ser and Schoen\, I will show how this solution leads to the construction o
f new free boundary minimal surfaces in the unit 3-ball that have area lar

Piecewise circular curves and flag positivity.\nby Jean-Philippe Burel
le (Univ. de Sherbrooke) as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométr
ie et Topologie\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this joint work with Ryan Kirk\, we inve
stigate moduli spaces of closed piecewise circular curves. A curve is piec
ewise circular if it is made of pieces which are circular arcs\, and these
arcs are tangent at the intersection of pieces. We identify a special con
nected component of these moduli spaces and prove that it is homeomorphic
to an open ball of dimension 2n-10. We characterize this component as the
subset of curves which have decreasing curvature in an appropriate sense.
The proof involves "Lie circle geometry"\, a somewhat out of fashion theor
y of the homogeneous spaces of Sp(4\,R)\, and Lusztig-Fock-Goncharov posit
ivity.\n

Calculus in homotopy theory\nby Georg Biedermann (Universidad del Nort

ture held in PK-5115.\n\nAbstract\n(joint with M. Anel\, E. Finster and A.
Joyal)\nIn classical calculus one studies smooth functions via their Tayl
or series. Its $n$-th homogeneous layer is governed by a single coefficien
t: the $n$-th derivative. As part of his effort to relate algebraic K-theo
ry to topological cyclic homology Goodwillie during the 90s introduced "Go
odwillie calculus" to homotopy theory. A homotopy invariant functor is vie
wed as an analogue of a smooth function and resolved into a tower whose $n
$-th homogeneous layer is governed by a single coefficient: a spectrum (in
the sense of homotopy theory) with $\\Sigma_n$-action. Goodwillie calculu
s is now a central tool in homotopy theory.\nAround the same time (and inf
luenced by Goodwillie) Michael Weiss constructed "orthogonal calculus": sp
ace-valued functors from the category of finite dimensional Euclidean vect
or spaces with morphism given by Stiefel manifolds are resolved into an or
thogonal tower whose $n$-th homogeneous layer is governed by a spectrum wi
th an action by $O(n)$. Weiss' theory has found many applications in diffe
rential topology.\nPeople have wondered for a long time whether both theor
ies have a common description. We can give one. In fact\, it turns out tha
t the theory of $\\infty$-topoi is the perfect language. For any left exac
t localization $L$ of an $\\infty$-topos we construct a tower $(P_n)_{n\\g
e 0}$ of left exact localizations such that $P_0=L$. The pointed objects o
f the layers form stable $\\infty$-categories. The tower is analogous to t
he completion tower of a commutative ring with respect to an ideal. It spe
cializes to Goodwillie's and Weiss' tower.\n\nI am going to tell you a bit
about all these towers.\n

zeta regularized spectral determinants of Laplacians on compact Riemann su

s and\, in particular\, show how the determinants of Laplacians depend on
the orders (angles) of conical singularities. With a simple example I wil

ingular metrics are very different from the classical results of Osgood\,
Phillips\, and Sarnak for the smooth metrics. If time permits\, I will als
o discuss how this is related to Kaehler potentials of metrics on moduli s

Monge-Ampere equation in hypercomplex geometry\nby Marcin Sroka (CIRGE

ing the solvability of the so called quaternionic Monge-Ampere equation. T
his second order\, elliptic\, nonlinear PDE was introduced by Alesker and
Verbisty as a device for confirming the version of Calabi conjecture on hy
percomplex manifolds. Its solvability has applications also for obtaining
Calabi-Yau type theorems\nfor some classes of hermitian and hyperhermitian
metrics.\n

Homology cobordism and knot concordance\nby Sally Collins (Georgia Tec

are homology cobordant rel meridians if there exists an integer homology c
obordism X between them such that the two positive knot meridians are in t
he same homology class of X. It is a natural question to ask: if two knots
have the “same” 0-surgeries in this sense\, must they be smoothly con
cordant? We give a pair of rationally slice knots as counterexample\, with
one of concordance order two and the other of infinite order\, and along
the way expand upon a Floer homology technique for obstructing torsion in
the smooth concordance group first introduced by Hom\, Kang\, Park\, and S

Strongly quasipositive knots are concordant to infinitely many strongly qu

Abstract\nKnots are smooth embeddings of the (oriented) circle S^1 into th
e 3-sphere S^3\, usually studied up to an equivalence relation called ambi
ent isotopy. A natural generalization in dimension 4 of the question wheth
er certain knots are isotopic to the trivial knot is the concept of concor
dance\, another equivalence relation on the set of knots.\nWe show that ev
ery non-trivial strongly quasipositive knot is (smoothly) concordant to in
finitely many pairwise non-isotopic strongly quasipositive knots. In contr
ast to our result\, it was conjectured by Baker that concordant strongly q
uasipositive fibered knots are isotopic. Our construction uses a satellite
operation whose companion is a slice knot with maximal Thurston-Bennequin
number -1.\nIn the talk\, we will define the relevant terms necessary to
understand the theorem in the title\, and explain the context of this resu
lt. If time permits\, we will say a few words about how the construction e
xtends to links.\n

4-dimensional specific aspects of Ricci flows\nby Tristan Ozuch (MIT)
as part of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et Topologie\n\nLectur

and most results are either true only in dimension 3 or hold in every dime
nsion. However\, given the potential topological applications\, a theory s
pecific to the 4-dimensional situation is desirable. In this discussion\,
I will present tools and techniques that are unique to the 4-dimensional c
ase.\n\nTogether with A. Deruelle\, we introduce a notion of stability for
orbifold singularities. This notion helps to explain the formation of orb
ifold singularities along Ricci flow. Moreover\, in collaboration with K.
Naff\, we utilize self-duality in dimension 4 to simplify the evolution eq
uations of curvature. This approach lets us uncover intriguing connections
between Ricci flow and Yang-Mills flow.\n

e work of Harder and Narasimhan\, the concept of canonical (Harder and Nar
asimhan) filtration emerged as a fundamental tool for measuring the extent
to which a given object in a suitable category fails to be slope semistab
le. In this lecture\, I will discuss an abstract concept of Harder and Na
rasimhan data which I formulated as a tool for expanding on the key techni
cal techniques of Codogni and Patakfalvi\, which arise in their work on we
ak positivity of the CM line bundle over the moduli stack of K-semistable
Fano varieties. Another source of motivation is Grayson's lattice reducti
on theory via slope semistability. Finally\, via theory of Faltings and W
ustholz\, for slope semistabilty of filtered vector spaces\, there is a st
rong overlap with techniques from Diophantine approximation for linear ser
ies. As application of this circle of ideas\, I will explain a recent res
ult which gives a filtered vector space analogue to the above mentioned ke
y technical result of Codogni and Patakfalvi.\n

ability of this class. In this talk\, we will discuss a resolution of\nthi

that they come equipped with a connection which allows\ndefining\, from an

Hörmander’s $L^2$-estimates for the $\\bar{\\partial}$ operators on hol
omorphic line bundles are of fundamental importance in complex analytic ge
ometry\, whose conventional proof crucially relies on the positivity of th
e line bundle. In this talk\, we prove the $L^2$-estimates for the solutio
ns to the $\\bar{\\partial}$ equation that hold uniformly for all flat non
trivial line bundles on compact Kähler manifolds\, whose main feature is
the quantitative description of the blow-up behaviour as the line bundle a
pproaches the trivial one. A key ingredient in the proof is the observatio
n that line bundles with vanishing first Chern classes are topologically t
rivial and can be identified with the trivial bundle with the "perturbed"
$\\bar{\\partial}$ operator which we define in terms of coordinates on the
Picard variety. This is a joint work with Takayuki Koike.\n

ization of K-stable varieties is well-studied when $K_X$ is ample or X is
a Calabi-Yau or Fano variety. However\, K-stability of Fano fibrations or
Calabi-Yau fibrations (i.e.\, $K_X$ is relatively trivial) is not known mu
ch in algebraic geometry. On the other hand\, cscK problems on fibrations
are studied by Fine\, Jian-Shi-Song and Dervan-Sektnan in Kahler geometry.
We introduce adiabatic K-stability (If $f:(X\,H)\\to (B\,L)$ is a fibrati
on of polarized varieties\, this means that K-stability of $(X\,aH+L)$ for
sufficiently small a) and show that adiabatic K-semistability of Calabi-Y
au fibration implies log-twisted K-semistability of the base variety by ap
plying the canonical bundle formula and the result on J-stability. If the
base is a curve\, we also obtain a partial converse. In this talk\, I woul

DESCRIPTION:Title: Group actions on bifoliated planes and classification of (pseudo)-Anosov
flows in dimension 3\nby Thomas Barthelmé (Queen's University) as par
t of CRM - Séminaire du CIRGET / Géométrie et Topologie\n\nLecture held
in PK-5115.\n\nAbstract\nAn old problem in dynamical systems is to try to
classify Anosov flows up to orbit-equivalence. This question is particula
rly interesting in dimension 3 where we both have lots of examples and a r
ich\, but still poorly understood\, relationships between the dynamics of
the flow and the topology of the manifold. By a result of T. Barbot\, clas
sifying Anosov flows (or more general pseudo-Anosov flows) in dimension 3
up to orbit equivalence restricts to classifying\, up to conjugacy\, certa
in actions of \\pi_1(M) on the orbit space\, a topological plane with two
transverse foliations. \n\nIn this talk\, I will recall the above and dis
cuss a new complete invariant for transitive (pseudo)-Anosov flows which o
ften reduces to just knowing which conjugacy classes in \\pi_1(M) are repr
esented by periodic orbits of the flow. \n\nIf time permits\, I’ll talk
about some applications with link to contact geometry. This is all joint w
ork with Kathryn Mann\, Steven Frankel and Sergio Fenley.\n

\"ahler manifold $(M\,L)$\, we consider the circle bundle associated to th
e polarization with the induced transversal holomorphic structure. The spa
ce of contact structures compatible with this transversal structure is nat
urally identified with a bundle\, of infinite rank\, over the space of K\\
"ahler metrics in the first Chern class of $L$. We show that the Einstein-
-Hilbert functional of the associated Tanaka--Webster connections is a fun
ctional on this bundle\, whose critical points are constant scalar curvatu
re Sasaki structures. In particular\, when the group of automorphisms of $
(M\,L)$ is discrete\, these critical points correspond to constant scalar
curvature K\\"ahler metrics in the first Chern class of $L$. We show that
the Einstein--Hilbert functional satisfies some monotonicity properties al
ong some one-parameter families of CR-contact structures that are naturall
y associated to test configurations\, and that its limit on the central fi
ber of a test configuration is related to the Donaldson--Futaki invariant.
As a by-product\, we show that the existence of cscK metrics on a polariz
ed manifold implies K-semistability. This is a joint work with Eveline Leg

e\n\nLecture held in PK-5115.\n\nAbstract\nWe will introduce and motivate
the concept of a central type (or space) and explain their associated noti
on of torsor\, called a band. Much like one can deloop a group G by its ty
pe of torsors BG\, the type of bands of a central type A forms a delooping
of A. Moreover\, we show that the delooping of A is itself central\, allo
wing us to iterate. This procedure yields a new construction of Eilenberg-
Mac Lane spaces\, which are examples of central types. We also produce a m
ysterious formula for delooping pointed self-maps of A\, and study the mod
uli space of H-space structures on a pointed type.\n\nOur results have bee
n shown in homotopy type theory\, and most have been formalized using the
Coq-HoTT library [1]. For this talk\, we do not assume familiarity with ty
pe theory\; rather\, we will translate our results for topologists. This w
ork is joint with Ulrik Buchholtz\, Dan Christensen\, and Egbert Rijke. [2

$ is an involutive complex Lagrangian subbundle $P$ of the complexified ta

larizations which intersect their complex conjugates trivially. Much work
has been done discussing how Kähler structures behave under symplectic re
duction\, with only partial results for the reduction of more general pola
rizations. In this talk\, I will discuss the reduction of polarizations an
d also extend to the setting of singular reduction explored by Sjamaar-Ler

flows are an important class of dynamical systems due to their ergodic and
geometric properties. Even though they represent examples of chaotic dyna
mics\, they enjoy the remarkable property of being stable under small pert
urbations. In this talk\, I will explain how\, perhaps surprisingly\, Anos
ov flows are related to both integrable plane fields (foliations) and tota

s a less-studied approach that has the potential to make new connections t

analytic properties of solutions to the Vafa-Witten equations over compact
Kaehler manifolds. Simple obstructions to the existence of nontrivial sol

iant locus of the moduli space behaves similarly as the Hermitian-Yang-Mil

ounded spectral covers such as nilpotent solutions. When spectral covers a
re unbounded\, we manage to take limits of the renormalized Higgs fields w
hich are intrinsically characterized by the convergence of the associated
spectral covers. This gives a simpler proof for Taubes’ results on rank
two solutions over Kaehler surfaces together with a new complex geometric

nLecture held in PK-5115.\n\nAbstract\nWe will explain how to construct ne
w examples of complete Calabi-Yau manifolds of maximal volume growth on ce
rtain smoothings of Cartesian products of Calabi-Yau cones. A description
of the geometry at infinity will be given in terms of a compactification
by a manifold with corners obtained through a suitable sequence of blow-up
s. A key analytical step in the construction of these Calabi-Yau metrics
is to derive good mapping properties of the Laplacian on some suitable wei
ghted Hölder spaces. Our methods also produce Calabi-Yau metrics with a
n isolated conical singularity modelled on a Calabi-Yau cone distinct from
the tangent cone at infinity\, in particular yielding a transition behavi
or between different Calabi-Yau cones as conjectured by Yang Li. This is
used to exhibit many examples where the tangent cone at infinity does not
uniquely specify a Calabi-Yau metric with exact Kähler form. This is a j
