Subject:
Mathematics, Geometry / Topology

This chapter takes up the proof of Lemmas 4.16 and 4.19, which are easier than Lemma 4.24. The proof of these two lemmas relies on the study of the first conformal variation of the assumption of ... More

Subject:
Mathematics, Geometry / Topology

This chapter takes up the proof of Lemma 4.24, which has two cases, A and B. The strategy goes as follows: It first repeats the ideas from Chapter 5 and derives a new local equation from the ... More
