TITLE Existence of canonical Kahler metrics on spherical varieties: Lecture 2. Differential geometric aspects: horosymmetric varieties
ABSTRACT Existence of canonical K?hler metrics on complex manifolds is one of the major problems in analytic and algebraic complex geometry. In this series of lectures, I will present various results regarding this question, on the class of spherical varieties. I will explain why and how these varieties are more tractable both from the differential geometry and the algebraic geometry viewpoint. A short and biased historical review of examples will serve as a motivation to study this particular class, but I will also try to highlight how this study may yield useful insight for the study of more general varieties, and hint at various significant obstacles still to be lifted for spherical varieties.

The plan of the lecture will roughly be as follows:
Lecture 1 - Overview of canonical metrics on spherical varieties (short historical review, combinatorial criterions, examples and counter-examples) January 5 (Wednesday), 19:00-21:00 (KST)
