# Kahler-Einstein metrics on Toric manifolds are Torus-invariant?

let $(M,\omega)$ be a Kahler-Einstein toric manifold of complex dimension $m$. By toric manifold i mean a manifold that has an open dense subset $X$ biholomorphic to an algebraic torus $\mathbb{T}^{m}:=( \mathbb{C}^{*})^{m}$ and there is a holomorphic action $$\alpha:\mathbb{T}^{m}\times M\rightarrow M$$ that on $X$ restricts to the standard action of $\mathbb{T}^{m}$ on itself. My question is the following: is the Kahler Einstein metric $\omega$ automatically invariant under the action of $\mathbb{T}^{m}$? If it is a known result can someone tell me a reference?

Thank you in advance.

• Well, the Fubini-Study metric on $\mathbb P^1$ is already not invariant under the torus action. Commented Jan 29, 2014 at 14:33
• Your notation is causing some confusion because you are confusing the algebraic torus with the compact subgroup $K$ generated by the $S^1$-subgroups of the $\mathbb{C}^\ast$-factors, and $K$ is a topological torus. Generally, one asks that the toric metric be invariant under $K$, not the whole (noncompact) algebraic torus, which is much more reasonable. Commented Jan 29, 2014 at 15:35
• @Robert: If i consider the action of the compact subgroup $K$ is $\omega$ K-invariant? Are there obstructions? Commented Jan 29, 2014 at 15:44

I would put this in the comments if I could. I think you will find the answer to your question here (I cannot access this paper):
