ABSTRACT
A non-local flow is defined for compact Riemann surfaces. Assuming the initial metric has positive Gauss curvature and is not conformal to the round sphere, the flow exists on some maximal time interval, and converges along a subsequence to a metric which admits a conformal Killing vector field. By a result of Tashiro (Trans Am Math Soc 117:251�275, 1965), the limiting metric must be conformal to the round sphere.

    In Riemannian foliation, a transverse affine vector field preserves the curvature and its covariant derivatives. In this paper we solve the converse problem. Actually, we show that an infinitesimal automorphism of a Riemannian foliation which preserves the curvature and its covariant derivatives...

We apply the method to the group of homotopy classes of quasiconformal self-maps of the complement $\Omega$ of a...

Their dual field-theoretic interpretation suggests the existence of solutions interpolating between an arbitrary...
