This ebook presents a wide but accomplished creation to the research of harmonic maps and their warmth flows. the 1st a part of the ebook comprises many vital theorems at the regularity of minimizing harmonic maps by way of Schoen-Uhlenbeck, desk bound harmonic maps among Riemannian manifolds in greater dimensions by way of Evans and Bethuel, and weakly harmonic maps from Riemannian surfaces via Helein, in addition to at the constitution of a novel set of minimizing harmonic maps and desk bound harmonic maps by way of Simon and Lin.The moment a part of the publication incorporates a systematic insurance of warmth stream of harmonic maps that incorporates Eells-Sampson's theorem on worldwide gentle options, Struwe's nearly average recommendations in measurement , Sacks-Uhlenbeck's blow-up research in measurement , Chen-Struwe's lifestyles theorem on in part gentle suggestions, and blow-up research in greater dimensions via Lin and Wang. The ebook can be utilized as a textbook for the subject process complicated graduate scholars and for researchers who're drawn to geometric partial differential equations and geometric research.

This ebook introduces graduate scholars and resarchers to the research of the geometry of Banach areas utilizing combinatorial tools. The combinatorial, and specifically the Ramsey-theoretic, method of Banach house concept isn't new, it may be traced again as early because the Seventies. Its complete appreciation, even though, got here simply over the last decade or so, after one of the most vital difficulties in Banach area thought have been solved, reminiscent of, for instance, the distortion challenge, the unconditional easy series challenge, and the homogeneous area challenge.

38). ✷ 30 CHAPTER 2. 5 holds with = i −1 . Then we have Sj (u) = ∪i≥1 Sj,i . Next for any integer q ≥ 1 we let Sj,i,q = x ∈ Sj,i : Θn−2 (u, x) ∈ ( q−1 q , ] i i so that Sj (u) = ∪i,q Sj,i,q . 41) for some j-dimensional subspace Ly,ρ of Rn . We now recall that if L is a j-dimensional subspace of R n and for each δ ∈ (0, 18 ) we can find β = β(δ) with limδ→0 β(δ) = 0 and σ = σ(δ) ∈ (0, 1) such that for each R > 0 a 2δR-neighborhood of L ∩ BR (0) can be covered by balls BδR (yk ) with centers yk ∈ L ∩ BR (0), k = 1, · · · , Q such that Q(δR)j+β(δ) < 21 Rj+β(δ) .

45) L2 (S n−1 ) < δ, where τS n−1 (ψ) = ∆S n−1 ψ + A(ψ) (∇S n−1 ψ, ∇S n−1 ψ) is the tension field of ψ from S n−1 to (N, h). 1. For simplicity, assume M = Ω ⊂ R n and x0 = 0 ∈ Ω. First recall, by the definition of minimizing tangent map, that there is a seqeuence ρi ↓ 0 such that the rescaled maps uρi (≡ u(ρi x)) converge in x . By the assumption, we have φ0 ∈ C ∞ (S n−1 , N ) is a smooth H 1 to φ(x) = φ0 |x| harmonic map. Thus for any η > 0 there is a sufficiently large j such that for ρ = ρ j we have |uρ − φ|2 < η 2 .
