A recent breakthrough of Wu and Yau asserts that a compact projective Kahler manifold with negative holomorphic sectional curvature must have ample canonical line bundle. In this talk, we will discuss an approach using geometric heat flow and the extended work when the Kahler condition is a-priori unknown. This is joint work with J. Streets.
