The aim of this seminar is to attract graduate students to Geometric Analysis, through learning and research talks. All talks should be accessible to beginning graduate students who might have background either in PDEs or in geometry, but not necessarily in both.

Title: Metrics of constant Chern scalar curvature and a Chern-Calabi flow
Abstract: We discuss the existence problem of constant Chern scalar curvature metrics on a compact complex manifold. We prove a priori estimates for these metrics conditional on an upper bound on the entropy, extending a recent result by Chen-Cheng in the K\"ahler setting. In addition, we show how these estimates can be used to prove a convergence result for a Hermitian analogue of the Calabi flow on compact complex manifolds with vanishing first Bott-Chern class.
