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 a special case of a conjecture in {arXiv:0905.3992}. 
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.
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
On conformally covariant powers of the Laplacian
We propose and discuss recursive formulas for conformally covariant powers $P_{2N}$ of the Laplacian (GJMS-operators). For locally conformally flat metrics, these describe the non-constant part ofExpand

Holographic formula for Q-curvature. II
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].
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
