It has been conjectured that if solutions to the Yamabe PDE on a smooth Riemannian manifold (Mn, g) blow-up at a point p M, then all derivatives of the Weyl tensor Wg of g, of order less than or equal to, vanish at p M. In this paper, we will construct smooth counterexamples to the Weyl Vanishing Conjecture for any n ≥ 25.
