Description:

 

In this course we will introduce the basic idea and results of harmonic maps and their heat flow. Including Schoen-Uhlenbeck's regularity on the energy minimizing maps, Sacks-Uhlenback's theorem and Eells-Sampson's heat flow on non-positive curvature manifolds and blow-up analysis of 2-D heat flows.

 

Prerequisite:

 
Basic Elliptic and parabolic PDEs and Remannian geometry
