Conformally Euclidean metrics on $\mathbb R^n$ with arbitrary total $Q$-curvature

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 3, 635–652
Abstract

We study the existence of solution to the problem

(Δ)n2u = Qenu in n ,κ :=nQenudx < ,

where Q 0, κ(0,) and n 3. Using ODE techniques, Martinazzi (for n = 6) and Huang and Ye (for n = 4m + 2) proved the existence of a solution to the above problem with Q  constant > 0 and for every κ (0,). We extend these results in every dimension n 5, thus completely answering the problem opened by Martinazzi. Our approach also extends to the case in which Q is nonconstant, and under some decay assumptions on Q we can also treat the cases n = 3 and n = 4.
