Questions tagged [weil-petersson-metric]

The Weil-Petersson metric is a Kahler metric on the moduli space of Calabi-Yau varieties, the moduli space of general type varieties, the moduli space of K-stable Fano varieties, and more generally, we can define it on the moduli space of stable varieties.

Integration à la Mirzakhani

Let $$ \gamma = \sum_i c_i \gamma_i $$ be a multi-curve on a hyperbolic surface $S$. For any $f: \mathbb{R}^+ \to \mathbb{R}^+$ one can define $$ f_\gamma (X) = \sum_{\alpha \in \mathrm{Mod} . \gamma} ...

Ricci curvature of the Weil-Petersson metric?

Let $\omega_{\text{WP}}$ denote the Weil-Petersson metric associated to a family of Calabi-Yau manifolds. That is, let $f : X \to Y$ be a surjective holomorphic map with connected fibres such that, ...

Weil-Petersson metric with respect to covering

Let $S$ be a closed oriented surface of genus $g\geq 2$. Consider the Teichmuller space $T(S)$. Let $d_t$ be the Teichmuller metric and $d_{WP}$ be the Weil-Petersson metric on $T(S)$. Let $P:S_1\...

Weil-Petersson norm of a Beltrami form

I'm reading Scott Wolpert's paper Noncompleteness of the Weil-Petersson metric for Teichmüller Space. He defines a path leading to the boundary of Teichmüller Space by giving surfaces $R_t$ ...

Is Teichmüller distance bigger than Weil-Petersson distance on Teichmüller space?

It is known that Teichmüller distance ($d_{Teich}$) on Teichmüller space is complete, whereas Weil-Petersson distance ($d_{WP}$) is not complete. See for example the article Wolpert, Scott. ...

Moduli space of log Calabi-Yau varieties exists?

Let $\mathcal M^{(X,D)}$ be a moduli space of pair varieties $(X,D)$ which $K_X+D$ is trivial and $D$ is a divisor with conic singularities on Kaehler variety $X$. I am looking for a proof that such ...
