The author expounds the notion of supported blow-up and applies it to study the renowned Nirenberg/Kazdan-Warner problem on \(S^n\). When \(n \ge 5\) and under some mild conditions, he shows that blow-up at a point with positive definite Hessian has to be a supported isolated blow-up, which, when combined with a uniform volume bound, is a removable singularity. A new asymmetric condition is introduced to exclude single simple blow-up. These enable the author to obtain a general existence theorem for \(n \ge 5\) with rather natural condition.
