TITLE: K3 Metrics from Little String Theory

ABSTRACT: I explain how one can find formulae for Ricci flat metrics on K3 surfaces by using data about the BPS spectrum of an auxiliary (compactified) little string theory. Well known approximations to such metrics, like the semi-flat approximation and the Gross-Wilson metric, arise as limits of this formalism.
