In a classical paper, Cafferelli, Gidas and Spruck discussed positive solutions of the Yamabe equation, corresponding to the positive scalar curvature of the conformal metrics, with a nonremovable isolated singularity. They proved that solutions are asymptotic to radial singular solutions. Korevaar, Mazzeo, Pacard, and Schoen expanded solutions to the next order. In this talk, we discuss how to expand solutions up to arbitrary order. We also discuss positive solutions of the Yamabe equation, corresponding to the negative scalar curvature of the conformal metrics, that become singular in an (n-1)-dimensional set.
