We consider the problem of finding a conformal metric on a compact surface in such a way that the Gaussian curvature becomes constant and so that at a finite number of points a prescribed conical structure is obtained. The problem has a variational structure, and differently from the “regular” case the Euler-Lagrange functional might be unbounded from below. We will look for critical points of saddle type using a combination of improved geometric inequalities and topological methods. This is joint work with D. Bartolucci, A. Carlotto, F. De Marchis and D. Ruiz.
