TL;DR: In this paper, the Ricci form of some Kahler metric is shown to be closed and its cohomology class must represent the first Chern class of M. This conjecture of Calabi can be reduced to a problem in non-linear partial differential equation.

Abstract: Therefore a necessary condition for a (1,l) form ( G I a ' r r ) I,,, Rlr dz' A d? to be the Ricci form of some Kahler metric is that it must be closed and its cohomology class must represent the first Chern class of M. More than twenty years ago, E. Calabi [3] conjectured that the above necessary condition is in fact sufficient. This conjecture of Calabi can be reduced to a problem in non-linear partial differential equation.

TL;DR: In this article, the structure of spaces Y which are pointed Gromov Hausdor limits of sequences f M i pi g of complete connected Riemannian manifolds whose Ricci curvatures have a de nite lower bound was studied.

Abstract: In this paper and in we study the structure of spaces Y which are pointed Gromov Hausdor limits of sequences f M i pi g of complete connected Riemannian manifolds whose Ricci curvatures have a de nite lower bound say RicMn i n In Sections and sometimes in we also assume a lower volume bound Vol B pi v In this case the sequence is said to be non collapsing If limi Vol B pi then the sequence is said to collapse It turns out that a convergent sequence is noncollapsing if and only if the limit has positive n dimensional Hausdor measure In par ticular any convergent sequence is either collapsing or noncollapsing Moreover if the sequence is collapsing it turns out that the Hausdor dimension of the limit is actually n see Sections and Our theorems on the in nitesimal structure of limit spaces have equivalent statements in terms of or implications for the structure on a small but de nite scale of manifolds with RicMn n Al though both contexts are signi cant for the most part it is the limit spaces which are emphasized here Typically the relation between corre sponding statements for manifolds and limit spaces follows directly from the continuity of the geometric quantities in question under Gromov Hausdor limits together with Gromov s compactness theorem Theorems see also Remark are examples of

TL;DR: In this article, the authors define the Ricci curvature of metric spaces in terms of how much small balls are closer (in Wasserstein transportation distance) than their centers are.

Abstract: We define the coarse Ricci curvature of metric spaces in terms of how much small balls are closer (in Wasserstein transportation distance) than their centers are. This definition naturally extends to any Markov chain on a metric space. For a Riemannian manifold this gives back, after scaling, the value of Ricci curvature of a tangent vector. Examples of positively curved spaces for this definition include the discrete cube and discrete versions of the Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process. Moreover this generalization is consistent with the Bakry–Emery Ricci curvature for Brownian motion with a drift on a Riemannian manifold. Positive Ricci curvature is shown to imply a spectral gap, a Levy–Gromov–like Gaussian concentration theorem and a kind of modified logarithmic Sobolev inequality. The bounds obtained are sharp in a variety of examples.
