Kazdan and Warner at the $70$'s published a serie of papers on the problem of ensuring the existence of metrics with prescribed scalar curvature.

For instance:




I am wondering the following: if one assumes that a compact Lie group $G$ acts by isometries on the Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$ and give a $G$-invariant function $K : M \to \mathbb{R}$, the existence of a $G$-invariant metric $\tilde g$ on $M$ with $K$ as its scalar curvature follows immediately from their work? If not, is there any reference in the literature where I can find it?
