The universal Teichmuller space is an infinite dimensional generalization of the Teichmuller space. In early 2000s, Takhtajan-Teo gave a Hilbert structure to the Universal Teichmuller space. Within this Hilbert structure, they proved several profound theorems about the geometry of the Kahler-Einstein metric (which coincides with the L^2-pairing). We consider the curvature operator of this metric and prove that it's bounded, nonpositive definite and noncompact.
This is based on joint work with Y. Wu (Tsinghua university).
