Blow-Up Phenomena for the Yamabe Problem

GEOMETRIC PDE SEMINAR
Topic:Blow-Up Phenomena for the Yamabe Problem
Speaker:Fernando Coda Marques
Affiliation:IMPA, Brazil and Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Thursday, October 2
Time/Room:1:30pm - 3:30pm/West Bldg. Lecture Hall

In this talk I will discuss the construction of blowing up solutions to the Yamabe Problem in high dimensions. I will show how one can use the methods of S. Brendle to produce smooth counterexamples to the Weyl Vanishing Conjecture also.
