Geometric Analysis
reading seminar
Time, place and
subjects
The geometric analysis reading seminar
will start from June to August 2017. We meet two times per week and decide
the time for the next meeting at the end of each meeting.
The reading seminar aims covering the following materials, particularly
paper 1, in details with also the possibility to read some papers related to
the theory of harmonic mapping in metric spaces with application to rigidity
results in geometric group theory.
 Harmonic
maps into singular spaces and padic superrigidity for lattices in
groups of rank one (Gromov
Schoen, Inst. Hautes Études Sci. Publ. Math. 1992)
 Harmonic
maps from a simplicial complex and geometric rigidity(DaskalopoulosMese,
J. Differential Geom. 2008)

Harmonic maps between singular spaces I (DaskalopoulosMese,
Comm. Anal. Geom. 2010)
Schedule (harmonic
mappings between metric spaces)
