Title: Smooth Gluing of K\"ahler Metrics with Constant Scalar Curvature.
Abstract: I will discuss joint work with Michael Singer showing how to
analyze smoothly, in the sense of manifolds with corners, the gluing
construction of Arezzo and Pacard which `lifts’ a K\"ahler metrics with
constant scalar curvature under the blow up of points. As time permits I
will also describe the obstructed case.
