Answering a question by M. Struwe  related to the blow-up behavior in the Nirenberg problem, we show that the prescribed Q-curvature equation Δ2u=(1−|x|p)e4u in R4,Λ:=∫R4(1−|x|p)e4udx<∞ has normal solutions (namely solutions which can be written in integral form, and hence satisfy Δu(x)=O(|x|−2) as |x|→∞) if and only if p∈(0,4) and [Formula presented] We also prove existence and non-existence results for the positive curvature case, namely for Δ2u=(1+|x|p)e4u in R4, and discuss some open questions.
