We present a new method to solve certain $\bar \partial$-equations for logarithmic differential forms by using harmonic integral theory for currents on Kähler manifolds. The result can be considered as a $\partial \bar \partial$-lemma for logarithmic forms. As applications, we generalize the result of Deligne about closedness of logarithmic forms, give geometric and simpler proofs of Deligne’s degeneracy theorem for the logarithmic Hodge to de Rham spectral sequences at $E_1$-level, as well as a certain injectivity theorem on compact Kähler manifolds.

Furthermore, for a family of logarithmic deformations of complex structures on Kähler manifolds, we construct the extension for any logarithmic $(n,q)$-form on the central fiber and thus deduce the local stability of log Calabi-Yau structure by extending an iteration method to the logarithmic forms. Finally we prove the unobstructedness of the deformations of a log Calabi-Yau pair and a pair on a Calabi-Yau manifold by the differential geometric method.
