The greatest Ricci lower bound, conical Einstein metrics and Chern number inequality

Jian Song and Xiaowei Wang

Geometry & Topology 20 (2016) 49–102
Abstract

We partially confirm a conjecture of Donaldson relating the greatest Ricci lower bound R(X) to the existence of conical Kähler–Einstein metrics on a Fano manifold X. In particular, if D | KX| is a smooth divisor and the Mabuchi K–energy is bounded below, then there exists a unique conical Kähler–Einstein metric satisfying Ric(g) = βg + (1 β)[D] for any β (0,1). We also construct unique conical toric Kähler–Einstein metrics with β = R(X) and a unique effective –divisor D [KX] for all toric Fano manifolds. Finally we prove a Miyaoka–Yau-type inequality for Fano manifolds with R(X) = 1.
