♥ Book Title: Harmonic Maps Between Riemannian Polyhedra ♣ Name Author: J. Selected topics in harmonic maps book Eells ∞ Launching: Info ISBN Link: ⊗ Detail ISBN code: ⊕ Number Pages: Total sheet ♮ News id: 8pjRqy5EfoEC Download File Start Reading ☯ Full Synopsis: "A research level book on harmonic maps between singular spaces, by renowned authors, first published in   Harmonic maps between smooth Riemannian manifolds play a ubiquitous role in differential geometry.

Examples include geodesics viewed as maps, minimal surfaces, holomorphic maps and Abelian integrals viewed as maps to a circle. The theory of such maps has been extensively developed over the last 30 years, and has significant applications throughout mathematics. A (smooth) map:M→N between Riemannian manifolds M and N is called harmonic if it is a critical point of the Dirichlet energy functional = ∫ ‖ ‖.This functional E will be defined precisely below—one way of understanding it is to imagine that M is made of rubber and N made of marble (their shapes given by their respective metrics), and that the map:M→N prescribes how one "applies.

In this chapter, we follow the notions and notations of harmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds by Eells- Sampson [] in the discuss the crucial topics in harmonic maps including fundamentals, regularity, maps of surfaces, maps of K \(\ddot{a}\) hler manifolds, maps into groups and Grassmannians, harmonic maps, loop groups.

Elegant and concise, this text is geared toward advanced undergraduate students acquainted with the theory of functions of a complex variable.

The treatment presents such students with a number of important topics from the theory of analytic functions that may be addressed without erecting an elaborate superstructure.

These include some of the theory's most celebrated results, which. HARMONIC MORPHISMS BETWEEN RIEMANNIAN MANIFOLDS 3 Definition A continuous map ϕ: U → C from an open subset of Rm is called a harmonic morphism if, whenever h: V → R is a harmonic function on an open subset V of C with ϕ−1(V) non-empty, then h ϕ is by: The text demonstrates how the theory of loop groups can be used to study harmonic maps.

By concentrating on the main ideas and examples, the author leads up to topics of current research. The book is suitable for students who are beginning to study manifolds and Lie groups, and should be of interest both to mathematicians and to theoretical.

The specific goal of the book is to show how the theory of loop groups can be used to study harmonic maps. By concentrating on the main ideas and examples, the author leads up Author: Martin A. Guest.

Harmonic mappings in the plane are univalent complex-valued harmonic functions of a complex variable. Conformal mappings are a special case where the real and imaginary parts are conjugate harmonic functions, satisfying the Cauchy-Riemann equations.

Ask Question Asked 8 years, it would be nice to hear suggestions of some important topics in the subject of harmonic analysis that are current interests of research and references one could use to better understand these topics.

I would tackle this before moving onto Elias Stein's book "harmonic. Selected topics in harmonic maps, volume 50 of CBMS Regional Conference Series in Mathematics. Published for the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences, Washington, DC, Some new Author: Marco Spinaci.

For example, the book excludes a large part of the theory of harmonic maps from 2-dimensional domains, where the methods are quite different from those discussed here. The first chapter consists of introductory material. Several equivalent definitions of harmonic maps are described, and interesting examples are presented.

RECTIFIABLE-REIFENBERG AND THE REGULARITY OF STATIONARY AND MINIMIZING HARMONIC MAPS AARON NABER AND DANIELE VALTORTA ABSTRACT. In this paper we study the regularity of stationary and minimizing harmonic maps f: B2(p) ⊆ M → N between Riemannian manifolds. If Sk(f) ≡ {x ∈ M: no tangent map at x is k + 1-symmetric} is the.

Abstract. This survey studies equivariant harmonic maps arising from Higgs bundles. We explain the non-abelian Hodge correspondence and focus on the role of equivariant harmonic maps in the correspondence.

With the preparation, we review current progress towards some open problems in the study of equivariant harmonic maps. The first book is pragmatically written and guides the reader to a lot of interesting stuff, like Hodge's theorem, Morse homology and harmonic maps.

The second book is mainly concerned with Cartan connection, but before that it has an excellent chapter on differential topology. Furthermore it treats Ehresmann connections in appendix A. CB CB/DUREN Janu Char Count= 0 1 Preliminaries Harmonic Mappings A real-valued function u(x, y)isharmonic if it satisfies Laplace’s equation: u = ∂2u ∂x2 ∂2u ∂y2 = 0.

A one-to-one mapping u = u(x, y),v= v(x, y) from a region D in the xy- plane to a region in the uv-plane is a harmonic mapping if the two coordi- nate functions are harmonic. Other books written by Eells on this topic were Selected topics in harmonic maps () with Luc Lemaire, Harmonic maps and minimal immersions with symmetries () with Andrea Ratto (another PhD student of Eells' who received his doctorate in ), and Harmonic maps between Riemannian polyhedra () with the Danish mathematician B Fuglede.

Harmonic generation by tightly-focused Gaussian beams is finding important applications, primarily in nonlinear microscopy. It is often naively assumed that the nonlinear signal is generated predominantly in the focal region.

However, the intensity of Gaussian-excited electromagnetic harmonic waves is sensitive to the excitation geometry and to the phase matching condition, and may depend on Cited by: 1. Eells did research on global analysis, especially, harmonic maps on Riemannian manifolds, which are important in the theory of minimal surfaces and theoretical physics.

His doctoral students included John C. Wood. In he was an invited speaker at the International Mathematical Congress in Nice (On Fredholm manifolds with K. Elworthy). Book Description.
