Harmonic mappings of Riemannian manifolds.
Presented by Chengjian Yao.
The first reading seminar of the term will take place at 2pm on 8th September, in room NO8.08. (Note this is not our usual seminar room.) Chengjian Yao will present the classic paper Harmonic mappings of Riemannian manifolds by Eells and Sampson. The seminar is meant to be informal, and questions are encouraged!
I am also looking for volunteers for future reading seminars. Please get in touch to offer a talk!
