Description

The subject of harmonic morphisms is relatively new but has attracted a huge worldwide following. Mathematicians, young researchers and distinguished experts came from all corners of the globe to the City of Brest - site of the first, international conference devoted to the fledgling but dynamic field of harmonic morphisms. Harmonic Morphisms, Harmonic Maps, and Related Topics reports the proceedings of that conference, forms the first work primarily devoted to harmonic morphisms, bringing together contributions from the founders of the subject, leading specialists, and experts in other related fields. Starting with "The Beginnings of Harmonic Morphisms," which provides the essential background, the first section includes papers on the stability of harmonic morphisms, global properties, harmonic polynomial morphisms, Bochner technique, f-structures, symplectic harmonic morphisms, and discrete harmonic morphisms. The second section addresses the wider domain of harmonic maps and contains some of the most recent results on harmonic maps and surfaces. The final section highlights the rapidly developing subject of constant mean curvature surfaces. Harmonic Morphisms, Harmonic Maps, and Related Topics offers a coherent, balanced account of this fast-growing subject that furnishes a vital reference for anyone working in the field.show more
