Test-configurations are certain degenerations of projective manifolds, which are used in the definition of K-stability, which in turn is related to the existence of special metrics. I will explain how filtrations of the homogeneous coordinate ring of a projective manifold can be thought of as sequences of test-configurations, and that they encode the limiting behavior of these sequences. Such filtrations arise naturally when studying the Calabi flow, or when trying to minimize the Calabi functional. I will also discuss how filtrations can be used to give a strengthening of the notion of K-stability, and why this is desirable.
