Oberseminar Differentialgeometrie By definition, harmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds are critical points of the energy functional.

In local coordinates the condition for a map to be harmonic constitutes a system of non-linear,

elliptic partial differential equations of second order.

Clearly, solutions to such differential equations are typically such maps are hard to construct.

In this talk we present a few construction methods of harmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds.

Furthermore, we will briefly explain applications of harmonic maps to other research areas (in Mathematics).
