The problem of studying the collapsing behavior of Ricci-flat Kahler metric on fibered Calabi-Yau manifolds as the fiber size shrinks translates into obtaining uniform estimates for a family of degenerating complex Monge-Ampere equations. I will describe joint work with H.J. Hein where we prove a priori C^k estimates for all k for the solution (away from the singular fibers), as a consequence of an asymptotic expansion in the fiber size, where each additional term of the expansion arises as the obstruction to proving a uniform bound on one additional derivative of the remainder.
