title = "The Q-curvature equation in conformal geometry",

abstract = "In this paper we survey some analytic results concerned with the top order Q-curvature equation in conformal geometry. Q-curvature is the natural generalization of the Gauss curvature to even dimensional manifolds. Its close relation to the Pfaffian, the integrand in the Gauss-Bonnet formula, provides a direct relation between curvature and topology.",
