**Yamabe Invariant**

**Yamabe Question**

@ __Solution__: Schoen JDG(84).

**Yang-Baxter Equation** > s.a.
integrable systems; lie algebras.

* __Idea__: A relationship
between elementary braids in the braid group with *n* strands.

* __Remark__: The solutions
of the YB equation "at roots of unity" are related to algebraic
curves of genus *g* > 1; They are also known to be connected with
the "chiral Potts model".

**Yano Tensor**

@ __References__: Cariglia CQG(04)ht/03 [and

**Yarkovsky Effect** > s.a. Asteroids.

* __Idea__: A non-gravitational
force acting on celestial bodies, e.g., asteroids, from recoil
due to re-emission of heat absorbed from the Sun.

**Yilmaz Theory**

* __Idea__: An alternative,
4D, curved spacetime theory of gravity, in which the Ricci curvature is defined
in terms of a massless Klein-Gordon scalar field on an initially flat spacetime,
and satisfies the Einstein equation with the usual scalar field stress-energy
tensor; It predicts the existence of *N*-body interacting solutions without event horizons.

**York Time** > see time in gravity.

**Young Tableaux** > s.a. group representations.

* __Idea__: A diagrammatic way of describing representations of finite and compact Lie groups.

* __Examples__: For SU(*n*), denoting the fundamental representation
by a box \(\square\) and the conjugate one by a column of *n*–1 boxes, we get:

* __Dimension__: The dimension
of such a representation can be calculated as follows: ...

**Yukawa Potential**
> s.a. renormalization [Yukawa theories with fermions].

* __Idea__: An exponential
potential *U*(*r*) = exp(–*r*/*λ*)/*r*,
introduced by Yukawa to describe a meson-mediated interaction, where the length
scale *λ* is related to the mass of the particle.
