For a homogeneous space G/P, where P is a parabolic subgroup of a complex semisimple
group G, an explicit Kähler­Einstein metric on it is constructed. The Einstein constant for the metric
is 1. Therefore, the intersection number of the first Chern class of the holomorphic tangent bundle of
G/P coincides with the volume of G/P with respect to this Kähler­Einstein metric, thus enabling
us to compute volume for this metric and for all Kählerian metrics on G/P invariant under the action
of a maximal compact subgroup of G.
