A classical theorem of Kodaira states that a holomorphic line bundle on a compact complex manifold is ample if and only if it carries a metric of positive curvature. More generally, one expects the geometry of a line bundle to be reflected by the ``positivity'' of its metrics. We explore this relationship in the context of multiplier ideals.
