We extend the Faltings modular heights of Abelian varieties to general arithmetic varieties, show direct relations with the Kähler–Einstein geometry, the minimal model program, and Bost–Zhang’s heights and give some applications. Along the way, we propose the “arithmetic Yau–Tian–Donaldson conjecture” (the equivalence of a purely arithmetic property of a variety and its metrical property) and partially confirm it.
