Title

Conformal deformation of metrics on subdomains of surfaces

Abstract

We consider prescribing Gaussian curvature on subdomains of a surface. We employ the distribution of mass principle (Theorem 3.3) to smooth subdomains of a Riemannian manifold to obtain that for critical and supercritical cases, a function can be the Gaussian curvature of some pointwise conformal metric, provided it satisfies certain conditions.
