This ebook presents a large but finished advent to the research of harmonic maps and their warmth flows. the 1st a part of the e-book comprises many very important theorems at the regularity of minimizing harmonic maps through Schoen-Uhlenbeck, desk bound harmonic maps among Riemannian manifolds in greater dimensions through Evans and Bethuel, and weakly harmonic maps from Riemannian surfaces through Helein, in addition to at the constitution of a novel set of minimizing harmonic maps and desk bound harmonic maps through Simon and Lin.The moment a part of the publication incorporates a systematic assurance of warmth move of harmonic maps that incorporates Eells-Sampson's theorem on worldwide gentle ideas, Struwe's virtually ordinary suggestions in size , Sacks-Uhlenbeck's blow-up research in size , Chen-Struwe's lifestyles theorem on partly gentle options, and blow-up research in better dimensions through Lin and Wang. The publication can be utilized as a textbook for the subject process complicated graduate scholars and for researchers who're attracted to geometric partial differential equations and geometric research.

Handbook of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry: Principles and Practice

Quantity 1 describes the fundamental historical past info universal to thermal research and calorimetry ordinarily. Thermodynamic and kinetic rules are mentioned besides the instrumentation and technique linked to thermoanalytical and calorimetric innovations. the aim is to assemble the dialogue of those basic ideas and reduce redundancies within the next volumes which are thinking about the functions of those rules and strategies.

Advanced Analysis and Design for Fire Safety of Steel Structures

Complex research and layout for hearth safeguard of metal buildings systematically offers the most recent findings on behaviours of metal structural elements in a fireplace, equivalent to the catenary activities of confined metal beams, the layout equipment for confined metal columns, and the membrane activities of concrete flooring slabs with metal decks.

Magnetic Domains: The Analysis of Magnetic Microstructures

The wealthy international of magnetic microstructure or magnetic domain names - extending from the "nano-world" to seen dimensions - is systematically lined during this publication. the topic, that can be known as "mesomagnetism", types the hyperlink among atomic foundations and technical purposes of magnetic fabrics, starting from laptop garage platforms to the magnetic cores of electric equipment.

43) ✷ Next we show that there is no minimizing tangent maps at the boundary. 3 Any minimizing harmonic map u 0 ∈ H 1 (B + , N ) that is homogeneous of degree zero and that is constant on B ∩ {x n = 0} must be constant. Proof. We follow the construction by Hardt-Lin [83]. We will consider the energy of a comparison map obtained by homogeneous of degree zero extension from a point (0, · · · , 0, α), where 0 < α < 1. We use spherical polar coordinates to represent x ∈ ∂B ∩ {xn ≥ 0} by (ω, φ) ∈ S n−2 × [0, π2 ].

3 For j = 0, · · · , n − 3, dim H (Sj (u)) ≤ j. 4. 4 For n ≥ 3, let u ∈ H 1 (Ω, N ) be a minimizing harmonic map. Then sing(u) has Hausdorff dimension at most (n − 3), and is discrete for n = 3. 3. FEDERER’S DIMENSION REDUCTION PRINCIPLE Proof. 3. For the second conclusion, we argue by contradiction. Suppose it were false. Then there exist {x i } and x0 in sing(u) such that xi → x0 . Set ri = |xi − x0 | → 0. Define vi (x) = u(x0 + ri x) : B2 → N . Then we have lim i→∞ B2 |∇vi |2 = lim i→∞ ri2−n B2ri (x0 ) |∇u|2 = 2n−2 Θn−2 (u, x0 ).

This chapter is organized as follows. 1, we present the classical theorem on weakly harmonic maps into regular balls by Hildebrandt-Kaul-Widman [95]. 2, we present the regularity of weakly harmonic maps by H´elein [90, 91, 92]. In [93], H´elein has given a detailed account of his important works. 3, we present the partial regularity of stationary harmonic maps. 4, we present some optimal partial regularity for stable-stationary harmonic maps. 1 Weakly harmonic maps into regular balls In this section, we will present the fundamental theorem, due to Hildebrandt-KaulWidman [95], on the regularity of weakly harmonic maps whose images are contained in any regular ball of N .
