Recent advances in the theory of harmonic maps

Orador/Speaker: John C. Wood (University of Leeds).

Data, hora e local: 29 de junho de 2016, às 15h na sala 6.5 (6ª fase).

Resumo/Abstract: Harmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds are maps which extremize a natural Dirichlet energy: they include geodesics and minimal surfaces. We will discuss some recent results on harmonic maps from surfaces including new criteria for when a harmonic map is of “finite uniton number” — work with A. Aleman — and new explicit constructions of harmonic maps — work with B.A. Simões and M.J. Ferreira.
