Talk Title: \sigma_2$ Yamabe problem on conic 4-spheres

Abstract: We discuss the constant $\sigma_{2}$ problem for conic 4-spheres. Based on earlier works of Chang-Han-Yang and Han-Li-Teixeira, we are able to find a necessary condition for the existence problem. In particular, when the condition is sharp, we have the uniqueness result similar to that of Troyanov in dimension 2. It indicates that the boundary of the moduli of all conic 4-spheres with constant $\sigma_{2}$ metrics consists of conic spheres with 2 conic points and rotational symmetry.
