Complex Monge-Ampère flows on compact Hermitian manifolds

Abstract : In this thesis we study the complex Monge-Ampère flows, and their generalizations and geometric applications on compact Hermitian manifods. In the first two chapters, we prove that a general complex Monge-Ampère flow on a compact Hermitian manifold can be run from an arbitrary initial condition with zero Lelong number at all points. Using this property, we confirm a conjecture of Tosatti- Weinkove: the Chern-Ricci flow performs a canonical surgical contraction. Finally, we study a generalization of the Chern-Ricci flow on compact Hermitian manifolds, namely the twisted Chern-Ricci flow. This part gave rise to two independent publications. In the third chapter, a notion of parabolic C -subsolution is introduced for parabolic non-linear equations, extending the theory of C -subsolutions recently developed by B. Guan and more specifically G. Székelyhidi for elliptic equations. The resulting parabolic theory provides a convenient unified approach for the study of many geometric flows. This part is a joint work with Duong H. Phong (Columbia University) In the fourth chapter, a viscosity approach is introduced for the Dirichlet problem associated to complex Hessian type equations on domains in Cn. The arguments are modelled on the theory of viscosity solutions for real Hessian type equations developed by Trudinger. As consequence we solve the Dirichlet problem for the Hessian quotient and special Lagrangian equations. We also establish basic regularity results for the solutions. This part is a joint work with Sl-awomir Dinew (Jagiellonian University) and Hoang-Son Do (Hanoi Institute of Mathematics).
