“Calabi-Yau theorems for non-Kahler metrics”

The celebrated Calabi-Yau theorem is an existence result for Kahler metrics with prescribed volume form (or equivalently prescribed Ricci curvature) on a compact Kahler manifold. Recently, some progress has been made in finding extensions of this result to different classes of non-Kahler metrics, such as balanced or Gauduchon metrics. I will describe several such theorems, including applications, and discuss some open questions. This is joint work with Ben Weinkove.
