Convergence of the Kähler–Ricci iteration

Tamás Darvas and Yanir A. Rubinstein

Vol. 12 (2019), No. 3, 721–735
Abstract

The Ricci iteration is a discrete analogue of the Ricci flow. According to Perelman, the Ricci flow converges to a Kähler–Einstein metric whenever one exists, and it has been conjectured that the Ricci iteration should behave similarly. This article confirms this conjecture. As a special case, this gives a new method of uniformization of the Riemann sphere.
