Conformally Covariant Powers of the Laplacian, Q-curvature and Scattering Theory

Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 275)


In the present chapter, we review the GJMS-construction of conformally covariant powers of the Laplacian, describe Branson’s definition of Q-curvature, and discuss the relation of both to geometric scattering theory on conformally compact Einstein manifolds.
