“Section 4 of the Lee/Parker paper on the Yamabe problem”
We will complete the proof of the last result from Section 3 on the model case of the sphere, then move on to Section 4, which is the variational approach. It includes the proof that the Yamabe problem can be solved on a general compact manifold Mn provided that λ(Mn) < λ(Sn). This is the analytic part of the solution.
