Differential Geometry Seminar: Several homogeneous fully nonlinear elliptic equations in geometry

Seminar | April 23 | 2:10-3 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Department of Mathematics

We discuss several (related) homogeneous fully nonlinear elliptic equations which originated from Kahler geometry and conformal geometry. We mainly focus on a class of equations introduced by Gursky and Streets. We discuss the existence and regularity of this equation and its application to the sigma-2 problem in conformal geometry.
