The goal of this project is to study the continuity of the dependence of best constants in Sobolev embeddings in the space of all Riemannian metrics of a given differentiable manifold. The motivation for this research is given by the relations that the best constants in inequalities of Sobolev type have in geometrical problems like the Ricci flow, the Yamabe problem, and the isoperimetric inequalities.
