The Kaehler potential for the standard Fubini-Study Kaehler form in projective space $\mathbb{C} P^n$ is given by:

$$\log(\sum_{i=0}^n |z_i|^2)).$$

What is the analogous formula for a Kaehler potential in a weighted projective space $\mathbb{C} P(m_0, \ldots, m_n)$ with weights $m_0, \ldots, m_n \in \mathbb{Z}_{\geq 0}$? That is, $\mathbb{C} P(m_0, \ldots, m_n) = (\mathbb{C}^{n+1} \setminus \{0\})/\sim$ where $(z_0, \ldots, z_n) \sim (\lambda^{m_0}z_0, \ldots, \lambda^{m_n}z_n)$ for any $0 \neq \lambda \in \mathbb{C}$.

Of course the weighted projective space is usually singular, and we are only asking for Kaehler potential in its smooth locus.

Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ I think you can get this just by following the Marsden-Weinstein reduction procedure using the obvious circle generated by the quotient action you have, but setting $|\lambda|=1$. Have you tried this? $\endgroup$ – Robert Bryant Apr 17 '14 at 11:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Robert Thanks, yes I noticed that but didn't know what the resulting Kaehler potential is. $\endgroup$ – user43696 Apr 17 '14 at 14:56

Weighted projective spaces are the simplest projective toric varieties and you can find the Kahler potential of singular toric varieties here

See page 21 of "Weighted projective embeddings, stability of orbifolds and constant scalar curvature Kähler metrics" by Ross-Thomas for a definition, they also discuss some other definitions.
