In differential geometry, the Kobayashi–Hitchin correspondence relates stable vector bundles over a complex manifold to Einstein–Hermitian vector bundles. The correspondence is named after Shoshichi Kobayashi and Nigel Hitchin, who independently conjectured in the 1980s that the moduli spaces of stable vector bundles and Einstein–Hermitian vector bundles over a complex manifold were essentially the same. This was proved by Donaldson for algebraic surfaces and later for algebraic manifolds, by Uhlenbeck and Yau for Kähler manifolds, and by Li and Yau for complex manifolds.
