The Yamabe problem asks to find on a given conformal class of metrics a
metric of constant scalar curvature. I will discuss nonlinear analogues where
the scalar curvature, which is the trace of the Ricci curvature tensor, is replaced
by other functions of the eigenvalues of the Ricci curvature tensor.
