Title: Q-curvature, some recent developments
Time: 2016-01-07 (Thu.)  16:00 - 17:00
Place: Room 202, Astro-Math. Building
Abstract: On manifolds of dimension 4, Q curvature is a natural extension of the Gaussian curvature on compact surfaces. In this talk, we will survey some analytic and geometric aspects and some recent study of Q curvature on manifolds of other dimensions. We will also discuss the study of the fractional Q curvature and connection to a class of non-local operators in conformal geometry.
