ABSTRACT
We show that on a compact Riemannian manifold with boundary there exists $${u \in C^{\infty}(M)}$$ such that, u ≡ 0 and u solves the σ-Ricci problem. In the case k = n the metric has negative Ricci curvature. Furthermore, we show the existence of a complete conformally related metric on the interior solving the σ-Ricci problem. By adopting results of (Mazzeo and Pacard, Pacific J. Math. 212(1), 169-185 (2003)), we show an interesting relationship between the complete metrics we construct and the existence of Poincaré-Einstein metrics. Finally we give a brief discussion of the corresponding questions in the case of positive curvature.

    McCann showed that, if the potential of a gradient-mapping, on a compact riemannian manifold, is c-convex, the length of its gradient cannot exceed the diameter of the manifold. We improve this bound in two different manners on the constant curvature spheres, under assumptions on the relative...

    On the tangent bundle of a Riemannian manifold (M; g) we consider a pseudo-Riemannian metric defined by a symmetric tensor field c on M and four real valued smooth functions defined on [0;1). We study the conditions under which the above pseudo-Riemannian manifold has constant sectional curvature.
