Positivity of Paneitz operators

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we give two results concerning the positivity property of the Paneitz operator-- a fourth order conformally covariant elliptic operator. We prove that the Paneitz operator is positive for a compact Riemannian manifold without boundary of dimension at least six if it has positve scalar curvature as well as nonnegative $Q-$curvature. We also show that the positivity of the Paneitz operator is preserved in dimensions greater than four in taking a connected sum.
