In this talk I will introduce the fractional Liouville equation on the circle S1 and its geometric interpretation in terms of conformal immersions of the unit disk into the complex plane. Using this interpretation we can show that the solution of the fractional Liouville equation have very precise compactness properties (including quantization) with a clear geometric counterpart. I will also compare these result with analogue ones for the classical Liouville equation in dimension 2, used to prescribe the Gaussian curvature.
This is a joint work with Tristan Riviere and Francesca Da Lio.
