Abstract: It is now widely known that negative gradient heat flows can be used to study several prescribing curvature problems. In this talk, I will present an heat flow to study Q-curvature on closed Riemannian manifolds of even dimension. I will also address the difference between low and high order equations and discuss a few questions related to this.
