Title: Rigidity for some PDEs on manifolds

Abstract: I will describe several results for local and non local semilinear equations on Riemmanian manifolds, concerning the rigidity of the solutions in the spirit of the De Girogi conjecture. Depending on the sign of the Ricci curvature, I will describe Liouville or symmetry type theorems. I will also give some results when one considers only the universal covering space of the manifold.
