  1. Q.A. Ngo, On a non-existence result for Einstein constraint-type systems with non-positive Yamabe constant, unpublished notes, 07 pages, viasm
    Abstract: We extend a recent non-existence result for an Einstein constraint-type system due to Dahl-Gicquaud-Humbert (Class. Quantum Grav. 30, 075004) from non-vanishing, non-positive metrics to metrics with non-positive Yamabe constant.
  2. L. Hong, Q.A. Ngo, X. Xu, On the scalar curvature functions on closed manifolds with positive Yamabe constant, in preparation.
    Abstract: In this paper, we prove that on a given closed Riemannian manifold of dimension n \geqslant 3 with positive Yamabe constant which is not conformally equivalent to the unit sphere, any smooth function is the scalar curvature of some metric in the given conformal class if and only if the function is positive somewhere.
  3. Q.A. Ngo, V.H. Nguyen, Sharp Adams-Moser-Trudinger type inequalities in the hyperbolic space, submittedviasm arXiv
    Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to establish some Adams-Moser-Trudinger inequalities, which are the borderline cases of the Sobolev embedding, in the hyperbolic space \mathbb H^n. First, we prove a sharp Adams inequality of order two with the exact growth condition in \mathbb H^n. Then we use it to derive a sharp Adams-type inequality and an Adachi-Tanaka-type inequality. We also prove a sharp Adams-type inequality with Navier boundary condition on any bounded domain of \mathbb H^n, which generalizes the result of Tarsi to the setting of hyperbolic spaces. Finally, we establish a Lions-type lemma and an improved Adams-type inequality in the spirit of Lions in \mathbb H^n. Our proofs rely on the symmetrization method extended to hyperbolic spaces.

  1. Q.A. Ngo, Classification of solutions for a system of integral equations with negative exponents via the method of moving spheres, unpublished notes, 15 pages. viasm (Now incorporated into this paper
    Abstract: The main objective of the present note is to study positive solutions of the following interesting system of integral equations in \mathbb R^n

    \displaystyle \left\{ \begin{array}{lcl} u(x) = \displaystyle \int_{\mathbb R^n} { |x-y|^p v(y)^{-q} dy},\\v(x) = \displaystyle \int_{\mathbb R^n} { |x-y|^p u(y)^{-q} dy},\end{array} \right. \qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad (\star)

    with p, q >0 and n \geqslant 1. Under the nonnegative Lebesgue measurability condition for solutions (u,v) of (\star), we prove that p q = p+2n must hold and that u and v are radially symmetric and monotone decreasing about some point. To prove this, we introduce an integral form of the method of moving spheres for systems to tackle (\star). As far as we know, this is the first attempt to use the integral form of the method of moving spheres for systems.

  2. Q.A. Ngo, X. Xu, Slow convergence of the Gaussian curvature flow on closed Riemannian surfaces with vanishing Euler characteristic, preprint, 20 pages.
    Abstract: In this note, we describe an alternative approach to solve the prescribed Gaussian curvature problem with vanishing Euler characteristic on closed Riemannian surfaces via a negative gradient curvature flow. The rate of the convergence of the flow is also studied in this note.
  3. Q.A. Ngo, X. Xu, A flow approach to the prescribed scalar curvature problem with vanishing Yamabe invariant, preprint, 70 pages (final version, revision). (The result has been announced several times before, for example, here and here.)
    Abstract: In this paper, we describe an alternative approach to some quantitative results of Escobar and Schoen for metrics of prescribed scalar curvature on closed Riemannian manifolds with vanishing Yamabe invariant via a negative gradient curvature flow. The main result is to remove the so-called flatness condition proposed by Escobar and Schoen; hence answering a conjecture by Kadzan and Warner affirmatively.
