Analysis Seminar

Title: Fractional Nirenberg problems and related topics
Speaker: Tianling Jin
Speaker Info: University of Chicago
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The classical Nirenberg problem asks for which functions on the sphere arise as the scalar curvature of a metric that is conformal to the standard metric. In this talk, we will discuss similar questions for some fractional order curvatures. This is equivalent to solving nonlocal equations of order up to n/2, where n is the dimension. We will show existence and compactness results, and discuss related topics on isolated singularities and fractional Yamabe flows.
