The concept of a harmonic map includes geodesics and minimal submanifolds as examples. Its existence and properties have successfully been applied to various problems in geometry and topology.

Some Nonlinear Problems in Riemannian Geometry Thierry Aubin This book deals with such important subjects as variational methods, the continuity method, parabolic equations on fiber bundles, ideas concerning points of concentration, blowing-up technique, geometric and topological methods. It offers insight into a wide range of topics, including fundamental concepts of Riemannian geometry, such as geodesics, connections and curvature; the basic models and tools of geometric analysis, such as harmonic functions, forms, mappings, eigenvalues, the Dirac operator and the heat flow method; as well as the most important variational. Volume 1presents a systematic introduction to the field from a brief survey of differentiable manifolds, Lie groups and fibre bundles to the extension of local transformations and Riemannian. A.

During the last few years, the field of nonlinear problems has undergone great book, the core of which is the content of the author's earlier book (Springer-Verlag ), updated and extended in each chapter, and augmented by several completely new chapters, deals with some important geometric problems that have only recently been solved or partially been solved.   The theory of Riemannian spaces. A Riemannian space is an -dimensional connected differentiable manifold on which a differentiable tensor field of rank 2 is given which is covariant, symmetric and positive definite. The tensor is called a metric tensor. Riemannian geometry is a multi-dimensional generalization of the intrinsic geometry (cf. Interior geometry) of two-dimensional .
