Paneitz Operator and Paneitz Curvature

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


In the present chapter we derive basic facts concerning the Q-curvature Q4 in dimension 4. In particular, we prove its conformal transformation law, i.e., the fundamental identity, which involves the Paneitz operator P4.
