Title : A strong maximum principle for the Paneitz operator
Time : 2014-05-09 (Fri) 10:30 - 12:00
Place : Seminar Room 722, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus)
Abstract: In this talk, we will focus on the maximum principle for the Paneitz operator , a fourth order differential operator defined on Riemannian manifolds. We will also discuss the positivity of the Green's function and the positive mass theorem for the Paneitz operator. The exposition will follow the paper by Gursky and Malchiodi (2014)
