Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2086)


This book is the first comprehensive reference on the Kähler–Ricci flow. It provides an introduction to fully non-linear parabolic equations, to the Kähler–Ricci flow in general and to Perelman’s estimates in the Fano case, and also presents the connections with the Minimal Model program.
