We extend the holographic formula for the critical Q-curvature in Graham and Juhl (2007) [9] to all Q-curvatures. Moreover, we confirm a conjecture of Juhl (2009) [11]. 
On the recursive structure of Branson's Q-curvature
We prove universal recursive formulas for Branson's $Q$-curvatures in terms of respective lower-order $Q$-curvatures, lower-order GJMS-operators and holographic coefficients.

We prove a universal recursive formulas for Branson's $Q$-curvature of order eight in terms of lower-order $Q$-curvatures, lower-order GJMS-operators and holographic coefficients. The results prove aExpand
Explicit Formulas for GJMS-Operators and Q-Curvatures
We describe GJMS-operators as linear combinations of compositions of natural second-order differential operators. These are defined in terms of Poincaré–Einstein metrics and renormalized volumeExpand
Universal recursive formulae for Q-curvatures
Abstract We formulate and discuss two conjectures concerning recursive formulae for Branson's Q-curvatures. The proposed formulae describe all Q-curvatures on manifolds of all even dimensions inExpand
Ambient Metrics for n-Dimensional pp-Waves
We provide an explicit formula for the Fefferman-Graham ambient metric of an n-dimensional conformal pp-wave in those cases where it exists. In even dimensions we calculate the obstructionExpand
Conformal Metrics with Constant Q-Curvature
We consider the problem of varying conformally the metric of a four dimensional manifold in order to obtain constant Q-curvature. The problem is variational, and solutions are in general found asExpand
Origins, Applications and Generalisations of the Q-Curvature
These expository notes sketch the origins of Branson’s Q-curvature. We give an introductory account of the equations governing its prescription, its roles in a conformal action formula as well as inExpand
Q curvature and gravity
In this paper, we consider a family of $n$-dimensional, higher-curvature theories of gravity whose action is given by a series of dimensionally extended conformal invariants. The latter correspond toExpand
Variational structure of the vn2-Yamabe problem
Abstract We define a formal Riemannian metric on a conformal class in the context of the v n 2 -Yamabe problem. We also give a new variational description of this problem, and show that theExpand
Holographic formula for the determinant of the scattering operator in thermal AdS
A 'holographic formula' expressing the functional determinant of the scattering operator in an asymptotically locally anti-de Sitter (ALAdS) space has been proposed in terms of a relative functionalExpand


Holographic formula for Q-curvature
In this paper we give a formula for Q-curvature in even-dimensional conformal geometry. The Q-curvature was introduced by Tom Branson in [B] and has been the subject of much research. There are now aExpand

Ambient metric construction of Q-curvature in conformal and CR geometries
We give a geometric derivation of Branson's Q-curvature in terms of the ambient metric associated with conformal structures; it naturally follows from the ambient metric construction of conformallyExpand
