## Volume growth and moduli spaces of critical Riemannian metrics

##### Abstract:

I will discuss a compactness result for various classes of Riemannian metrics in dimension four; in particular the method applies to anti-self-dual metrics, Kaehler metrics with constant scalar curvature, and metrics with harmonic curvature. With certain geometric assumptions, the moduli space can be compactified by adding metrics with orbifold singularities. Similar results were obtained previously for Einstein metrics, but our analysis differs substantially from the Einstein case in that we do not assume any pointwise Ricci curvature bound. This is joint work with Gang Tian.
