Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss the Dirichlet principle for two fully nonlinear operators. One of them arises from the conformal deformation problem on manifolds with boundary which includes prescribing \(sigma_k\) curvature equation. We use conformally invariants as the key technical tool to prove the Dirichlet principle. The other operator is the \(k\)-Hessian operator. We construct the matching boundary integral for it to prove Dirichlet principle.
