The $k$-Hessian operator $\sigma_k$ is the $k$-th elementary symmetric function of the eigenvalues of the Hessian. It is known that the $k$-Hessian equation $\sigma_k(D^2u)=f$ with Dirichlet boundary condition $u=0$ is variational; indeed, this problem can be studied by means of the $k$-Hessian energy $-\int u\sigma_k(D^2u)$. We construct a natural boundary functional which, when added to the $k$-Hessian energy, yields as its critical points solutions of $k$-Hessian equations with general non… Expand
Boundary operators associated to the $\sigma_k$-curvature
We study conformal deformation problems on manifolds with boundary which include prescribing $\sigma_k\equiv0$ in the interior. In particular, we prove a Dirichlet principle when the induced metricExpand
Generated Jacobian equations: from Geometric Optics to Economics
The field of generated Jacobian equations (GJE) is a nascent field, motivated on one hand by questions in geometric optics and partial differential equations, and on the other by structures thatExpand


On fractional GJMS operators
We describe a new interpretation of the fractional GJMS operators as generalized Dirichlet-to-Neumann operators associated to weighted GJMS operators on naturally associated smooth metric measureExpand

Sharp Sobolev trace inequalities on Riemannian manifolds with boundaries
In this paper, we establish some sharp Sobolev trace inequalities on n-dimensional, compact Riemannian manifolds with smooth boundaries. More specifically, let q = 2(n - 1)/(n - 2), 1/S = inf {∫Expand

Conformal deformation of a Riemannian metric to a scalar flat metric with constant mean curvature on the boundary
One of the most celebrated theorems in mathematics is the Riemann mapping theorem. It says that an open, simply connected, proper subset of the plane is conformally diffeomorphic to the disk. InExpand

Abstract In this paper, we study the Dirichlet problem for a class of fully nonlinear degenerate elliptic equations which depend only on the eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix. We provide a new andExpand

On a class of non-local operators in conformal geometry
In this expository article, the authors discuss the connection between the study of non-local operators on Euclidean space to the study of fractional GJMS operators in conformal geometry. TheExpand
