Abstract: We introduce conformal Bach flow and establish its well-posedness on closed 
manifolds.  We also obtain its backward uniqueness. To give an attempt  to study the 
long-time behavior of conformal Bach flow, assuming that the curvature and the pressure 
function are bounded, global and local Shi’s type $L^2$ estimate of derivatives of 
curvatures are derived.

To make the talk more accessible, we will spend some time to survey on high order 
parabolic curvature flow. This is a joint work with Jiaqi Chen of Xiamen University and 
Jie Qing of UCSC.
