Application of The Method of Moving Planes to Conformally Invariant Equations

Pengfei Guan, Chang-Shou Lin and Guofang Wang


In this paper, we apply the method of moving planes to a class of fully nonlinear conformal equations on locally conformally flat manifolds. The Harnack inequality, global estimates and hence existence are obtained for solutions. As an application, we obtain a sphere theorem.
