 "Discussion of the Kahler-Einstein problem" This is an informal document written in the summer of 2009, loosely related to my lecture at the Atiyah80 meeting in Edinburgh. The document  contains various  MISTAKES , and will
probably not be revised in its present form, but I am putting it here in case it may be of interest.  pdffile
