Professor Lei Zhang is giving a talk in our Asia-Pacific Analysis and PDE Seminar on

Blowup solutions and vanishing estimates for singular Liouville equations


The singular Liouville equation is a class of second order elliptic partial differential equations defined in two dimensional spaces: \[ \Delta u+ H(x)e^{u}=4\pi \gamma \delta_0 \] where \(H\) is a positive function, \(\gamma>-1\) is a constant and \(\delta_0\) stands for a singular source placed at the origin. This deceptively simply looking equation has a rich background in geometry, topology and Physics. In particular it interprets the Nirenberg problem in conformal geometry and is the reduction of Toda systems in Lie Algebra, Algebraic Geometry and Gauge Theory. Even if we only focus on the analytical aspects of this equation, it has wonderful and surprising features that attract generations of top mathematicians. The structure of solutions is particularly intriguing when \(\gamma\) is a positive integer. In this talk I will report recent joint works with Juncheng Wei that give a satisfactory answer to important issues to this equation. I will report the most recent results, new insights, and the consequences of these results.

Chair: Ki-Ahm Lee (Seoul National University, South Korea)
