In this talk, we discuss some recent results on $\sigma_2$ curvature on a 4 dimensional manifold. For a conic 4-sphere, we establish some numerical necessary condition for the existence of constant $\sigma_2$ curvature conformal metric. We also discuss the boundary compactness of the solution moduli. For the hyperbolic 4-disc, we establish a Penrose type inequality, which in particular implies a “negative” mass theorem.

This is a joint work with Wei Wei of Fudan University.
