Simone Siclari

During his PhD studies, Simone Siclari studied constant scalar curvature Kähler manifolds with conical behavior. The last property means that the spaces in object look like cones after zooming enough in or enough out. The focus was manly in the asymptotics i.e. the speed to which the manifold approach the reference cone.

Whether a space admits a metric with constant scalar curvature is an old problem in Kähler geometry and the hope is that the new examples provided by Simone Siclari will help the research move forward.

The PhD study was completed at the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.

This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
