title = "Some Remarks on the Geometry of a Class of Locally Conformally Flat Metrics",

abstract = "We prove that conformal metrics on domains of the round sphere, with non-negative constant Q-curvature, and non-negative scalar curvature, has positive mean curvature on the boundary of embedded balls (in the round metric). As a result, such metrics have certain reflection symmetries if the complement of the domain is contained in a lower-dimensional round sphere. We also prove that the development map of a locally conformally flat metric with non-positive Schouten tensor is an embedding.",
