Abstract

In conformal geometry, the Compactness Conjecture asserts that the set of Yamabe metrics on a smooth, compact Riemannian manifold (M,g) is compact. Established in the locally conformally flat case [41,42] and for n\leq 24 [23], it has revealed to be generally false for n\geq 25 [8,9]. A stronger version of it, the compactness under perturbations of the Yamabe equation, is addressed here with respect to the linear geometric potential n-2/4(n-1)Scal_g, Scal_g being the Scalar curvature of (M,g). Even tough the Yamabe equation is compact in some cases, surprisingly we show that a-priori L^\infty-bounds fail on all manifolds with n\geq 4 as well as H_1^2-bounds do in the locally conformally flat case when n\geq 7. In several situations, the results are optimal.
