# 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 in terms of respective lower order Q-curvatures and lower order GJMS-operators. They are universal in the dimension of the underlying space. The recursive formulae are generated by an algorithm which rests on the theory of residue families of [Juhl, Progr. Math. 275, 2009]. We attempt to resolve the… Expand
