Ricci flow on Kähler-Einstein manifolds. (English) Zbl 1097.53045

There is a long-standing problem in Ricci flow: on a compact Kähler-Einstein manifold, does the Kähler-Ricci flow converge to a Kähler-Einstein metric if the initial metric has positive bisectional curvature? In this article authors give a complete affirmative answer to this problem. Theorem 1.1: Let M be a Kähler-Einstein manifold with positive scalar curvature. If the initial metric has nonnegative bisectional curvature and positive bisectional curvature at least at one point, then the Kähler-Ricci flow converges exponentially fast to a Kähler-Einstein metric with constant bisectional curvature. This problem was completely solved by R. S. Hamilton in the case of Riemann surfaces.

As a direct consequence, the authors have the following Corollary 1.3: The space of Kähler metrics with nonnegative bisectional curvature (and positive at least at one point) is path connected. The space of metrics with a nonnegative curvature operator (and positive at least at one point) is also path connected.

Theorem 1.4. Let M be any Kähler-Einstein orbifold with positive scalar curvature. If the initial metric has nonnegative bisectional curvature and positive bisectional curvature at least at one point, then the Kähler-Ricci flow converges exponentially fast to a Kähler-Einstein metric with constant bisectional curvature. Moreover, M is a global quotient of P n ·
