Abstract: Over the past few decades, there has been significant exploration of the interplay between geometry and partial differential equations. In particular, some problems arising in conformal geometry, such as the classical Yamabe problem, can be reduced to the study of PDEs with critical exponent on manifolds. More recently, the so-called Q-curvature equation, a fourth-order elliptic PDE with critical exponent, is another class of conformal equations that has drawn considerable attention by its relation with a natural concept of curvature. In this talk, I would like to motivate these problems from a geometric and analytic perspective, and discuss some recent developments in the area, in particular regarding the singular Q-curvature problem.

Geometry Webinar AmSur /AmSul

Series comments: The Geometry Webinar AmSur/AmSul is promoted by differential geometry groups from Universities in Argentina and Brazil. The webinar happens weekly on Fridays at 14h00 (GMT-3) via Google Meet. Talks will be in Spanish, Portuguese or English. This virtual seminar aims to establish the contact with several research groups and mathematicians from Latin America. Everybody is invited to participate writing to the contact e-mail:

For each talk, the Google Meet link will be sent.
