The Q-prime curvature equation


Date: Tuesday, Mar  3, 2015

Time: 16:00

Place: Scuola Normale, Aula Mancini

Speaker: Paul Yang

Abstract. In CR geometry in 3D, the CR paneitz operator played an important role in the embedding problem as well as the
positive mass theorem. On the other hand, it does not define a useful curvature invariant. A closely related operator
which is called the P-prime operator, it defines the Q-prime curvature which is the integrand of the Burns-Epstein invariant. In this talk I present a result on prescribing the Q-prime curvature as well as an isoperimetric inequality associated with the Q-prime curavture integral.
