By Stephen Shing-Taung Yau

The yearly Surveys in Differential Geometry quantity is acquired with anticipation every year because it summarizes some of the contemporary discoveries within the box. This year's quantity is devoted to Professors Calabi, Lawson, Siu, and Uhlenbeck. It includes very important contributions through their scholars and associates and displays the real paintings within the box through those nice mathematicians. the amount is acceptable for graduate scholars and researchers drawn to geometry and topology. desk of Contents: 1.

By definition, if Mn is Kahler, there is a parallel almost complex structure J. P -1, V'J O. Suppose Mn splits off a line isometrically, Mn R X F- 1 • If v denotes the parallel vector field tangent to the R factor of this splitting, then V'v = O. Hence, V' J(v) = 0 as well. By the de Rham decomposition theorem, it follows that the vector fields, v, J(v), are tangent to the R 2 -factor of a local isometric splitting of the metric. In addition, the factor, R2, can be naturally identified with the complex plane C.

This paper is not intended as a general survey of the subject of the Einstein metrics. g. [Cal], [Yaul]' [Yau2]. Rather, we try to give a detailed overview of one specific line of progress due to Colding, Tian and the author (in various combinations) which has shed light on the following question: What sorts of objects arise as limits of sequences of badly behaved Einstein metrics?
