In this short note, based on a joint work with Tamas Darvas and Chinh Lu, we introduce and investigate pluripotential tools. In particular we give a characterization of the Monge-Ampère energy class \(\mathcal{E}\) in terms of “envelopes” and we focus on some consequences.



I would like to thank Daniele Angella, Paolo De Bartolomeis, Costantino Medori and Adriano Tomassini for organising the INDAM meeting “Complex and Symplectic Geometry” in Cortona and for the invitation to speak in that occasion. I would also like to thank Stefano Trapani for his comments and remarks on the paper [8] that gave as outcome the last section.
